Shibden will always be associated with Anne Lister, an independent-minded traveller and diarist who owned and managed the property until her premature death in 1840. But the house dates back to the fifteenth century and now presents as an outstanding timber-framed manor house. Anne made some significant alternations to the building and also landscaped the surrounding area and this has now been restored in accordance with her design - park in the upper car park and walk down to the house via the beautiful terraces. The site also houses a folk museum with a collection of carriages and workshops illustrating various rural crafts.
