Research is currently being carried out to bring you further details on the heritage of Lealholm.

In 1890 this was a hamlet called Lealholm bridge in the Parish of Glaisdale. At some time a Paper mill existed here employing some 20 people and it was as a river crossing that Lealholm grew and became a focal point for the surrounding dales.

The Shepherd's Hall was used for social functions and dances. Sometimes the small room would become so full of enthusiastic revellers that props had to be brought and placed beneath the dance floor to prevent it collapsing.
