Draycott Hall - a Memory of Fremington.

Draycott Hall was the home of the Denys family.  Sir George Deny wrote in his 1836 journal in Spain.
“To my Uncle, whose Heir I am…Dear Uncle, I’ve waited to hear, of your death so, alas! very long, That, despairing, I yield to the fear, that you must be undieably strong. Besides your unlimited wealth - How can you all decency brave? You’re enjoying the best of good health, When you ought to go into your grave!…”
Denys family had a great deal to do with the mining in the Swaledale.
