Eshton Hall School was situated in Gargrave in the West Riding of the County of York until the premises were abandonned and the building was turned into a nursing home. There is still an active group of alumni. During the Second World War Bentham School was relocated to Eshton Hall and afterwards in 1949 an independent public school was realised. Therefore Eshton was born as a co-ed initially. The original main building was burnt to the ground in the late 1500's, leaving only the old wing and arch. The new main building with its impressive tower was built in the early part of the 1600's by the Wilson family, who were Royalist sympathisers. H169.
