Extwistle Hall stands high on Extwistle Moor between Haggate and Worsthorne village. The Hall is built of coursed sandstone to 3 sides of a Courtyard and is now a ruin. It was built in the 16th Century by the Parker family who lived there for some two hundred years. The house was re-modelled in the late 18th Century. The principal front faces north and the fall of the ground southwards allowing for a basement makes the house one of four stories on that side, where the chief feature is the massive chimney of the hall which projects 5ft and has a width of 15 ft. The house consists of a rectangular block 34 ft by 27 ft 6 in externally and a north west wing 19 ft by 14 ft 6 in with a lower two storey building with plain gabled roofs on the east end. In front of the house is a small courtyard 43 ft long by 33 ft in width, partly enclosed on the west side by the north west wing, and on the east by the lower buildings.
