Denby Grange was a 1000-acre (405 ha) estate and mansion in Whitley UpperTownship in the ancient parish of Kirkheaton, in the West Riding of Yorkshire., between Huddersfield and Wakefield in the West Riding of Yorkshire, and the seat of the Lister Kaye baronets; members of the Kaye, subsequently Lister Kaye family, were living at Denby Grange before 1700.[1] The title became extinct with the death of the 6th Baronet, but the title was renewed in 1812 for Sir John Lister Kaye, Baronet, of Denby Grange.[1]

The house, described as having “a central hall with five reception rooms and 21 bedrooms”, remained in the family until 1948, when the estate was sold by Sir Kenelm Arthur Lister-Kaye along with the house, which was in a dilapidated condition, having been stripped of its fixtures and fittings. Job Earnshaw Bros bought the estate for its woodland. The house was again sold in 1949, and demolished.[2]
