““The estate, as a whole, has been in the Milbank family for a number of years (since 1690), so when my husband’s parents decided that it was time to pass Barningham onto the next generation, it was a privilege to take on the next phase of the estate’s life,” said Lady Milbank.

“Understanding the importance of tourism in the beautiful Dales, we were keen to continue with our programme of restoring the numerous redundant farm buildings.

“The hamlet of Helwith used to be a thriving community, however as the lead and tin manufacturing activities in the area declined, so did the population.”
