  • The 'Leechery' is a small brick built and castellated structure, measuring 10.7 feet (3.25 m) by 10.1 feet (3.07 m), which stands on the bank of the Bedale Beck. It was restored by the Bedale District Heritage Trust in 1985 and sits in a quarter of an acre of gardens known as the 'Bedale Renaissance Park' with an information board that explains its history and significance. It was built by an apothecary on the estate of the Beresford-Pierse family of Bedale Hall in the late 18th or early 19th centuryand was used for storing leeches until the early 1900s.
