History - In Calderdale there are many good 17th century houses and big mill-owners' houses, but Field House, an 18th century Georgian house of this size is quite unusual.
A house has been standing on this site since before 1240, and the ancient hall was rebuilt here by the Stansfeld family in 1630. This is the present Old Field Hall, a large clothier's house adjoining Field House that has a magnificent carved head over the door, could this have been the Mr Stansfeld the rebuilder
A Palladian-style house was built alongside The Old Field Hall for George Stansfeld in 1749. The Stansfeld coat of arms and the motto "Know thyself" can be seen on the pediment. This house is the "Field House" as described below.
When the old Church at Sowerby was pulled down, George Stansfeld, who was a major contributor to the new Church, expressed a desire to purchase parts of the old building and preserve them in his recently built hall as an extension. Among the parts removed to Field house were the belfry, a fine gothic arch from the east window which was divided into 27 lights by finely carved mullions having a circular light in the centre of the arch.
