Crossley House was commissioned as a grand stately family residence for the local philanthropist and industrialist, Sir Francis Crossley – member of the famous Crossley family and owners of the large carpet manufacturing complex at Dean Clough Mills, Halifax.
Other members of the family took up similar grand and regal residences in Halifax; John Crossley in Manor Heath and Joseph Crossley at Broomfield.
During 1845, Belle Vue Park saw the creation of a stately mansion through the work of Sir Joseph Paxton and George Henry Stokes. Paxton was already well known for his work at Crystal Palace, which was later completed for the Great Exhibition of 1851 in London.
Crossley House was completed with a majestic grandeur to include fine stonework, a large and imposing marble staircase, a grand central hallway, large richly plastered rooms with high ceilings, and spectacular chandeliers. Over the years, the original features have been retained and restored ensuring the venue continues to impose prestige and presence.
This exquisite property, which boasts elegance and grandeur, is now available for exclusive hire for weddings and events. Crossley House is steeped in both history and beauty, making it the perfect place to exchange vows and raise your glasses in celebration.
