I fully support his view that Sir Thomas was significant. I had a walk around Barnbow recently, taking a stroll from off the Garforth to Barwick road just lower down than the golf course.
You follow the path of the Cock Beck, and then away up the hill to where the old Gascoigne home used to be at the brow of the hill.
It seems that from the 1860's right through until 1916, Parlington was the home of many army manoeuvres, over fifty years in fact.
You wouldn't know it today if you were to stroll through the estate.
Fortunately, as if the Gascoignes' themselves were watching over the structure, the fallen trunk and branches have collapsed between the two remaining sections of masonry, so although I'm sure the ground must have been shaken badly nothing is apparently any the worse for wear to the remaining walls.
However, any fallen tree is fair game for the woodsman and his men to rip down to log size, so I fear the work on the ground needs to be supervised.
I never got much chance to look into the history, and to be honest, if I hadn't been offered the opportunity to set up my officeat the Hall, then perhaps the lost history of Parlington would have remained just that!
This site sets out what I discovered, please read on!

A historian and academic, Alex Lock who wrote his Ph D dissertation about Sir Thomas Gascoigne at Leeds University, has recently uncovered an interesting record in the National Archives about the Triumphal Arch at Parlington.
(2) The view of Parlington as it was at around 1880 from the lawn, south of the hall, the Cedar of Lebanon is just visible on the right of the picture, in the middle distance is the fountain. (3) A modern view, 2005, showing the remains of the hall, a part of what was the West Wing, which was used for utility rooms; still room, housekeeper's room, stores etc. (4) A photograph from around 1860 of the main entrance, Porte Cochere, a detailed account of the items in the house at the auction of 1905 is here.
(5) An aerial view of one of the farms sold in the sale of 1964; South Lodge Farm (Lot 4). Sadly there is a prospect of Parlington disappearing from the greenbelt and being turned over to a new town.
