Edgehill is a Grade II listed building and is very distinctive in the landscape. A former laithe house and a good example of vernacular architecture, typical of the upland farmsteads of West Yorkshire. It was built as a dual-purpose dwelling, being house and agricultural building constructed in one range. The form appears from the earliest stone buildings of the 17th century, but it is typical and widespread from the late 18th century, being adopted as a convenient and compact smallholding for tenant farmers on newly-enclosed land.
