Income received from the charity’s landholdings and other investments is used for the purpose of providing grants for the general benefit of the residents of Skipton.

The Estate’s landholdings comprise a total of approximately 265 acres, largely made up of grassland let to local farmers on Farm Business Tenancies, plus a small area (11.7 acres) of woodland (Bog Wood) to the North of Skipton.  The Estate also leases an area of land to Skipton Golf Club.

The Estate’s assets include the Tarn Moor Memorial Burial Ground, a natural woodland burial site, a licensed pub business The Craven Heifer , a number of commercial properties off Coach St, Skipton, and a network of public footpaths around the original tarn moor area.

The Estate was first established under the Enclosure Act 1767, becoming the property of the Lord of the Manor and the freeholders of Skipton with the income going to the support of the Poor. In recent years the Estate has been run by the Trustees, with the help of professional land and property management advisers.
