I believe there is so much local history associated with this property. Does nobody in authority know the value of anything any more!

This building is of local literary and historical significance, a pride of the village; it ought to be preserved. Why the indifference if others are willing to band together and restore it?
There will always be opportunities for new buildings, but fewer for such building if allowed to be destroyed.

I have visited Red House museum on several occasions and am saddened to think such a charming and important house should mo longer be open to all.

It's a shame that the red house in Gomersal is been left to rot .This is our Yorkshire heritage and links to the Brontes just like Oakwell Hall.Kirklees council should be ashamed of themselves.

We should not lose the Red House
It part or our heritage. Also associated with Charlotte Bronte and is part the Bronte Trail. It is part of our local history. We cannot lose it.
