Book cover

Researched and written by three members of the Local History Group, this book describes the development of the three hamlets, Wooldale Village, Town End and Lane Bottom into Wooldale as it is known today. Considered to be an area of historic interest and having been designated a Conservation Area it is timely that this well-illustrated book offers insights into thirty-one places of particular interest and the lives of those who live locally. The stone built houses, population, working lives, schooling, religion, leisure and sport, family life and personalities are important themes of the narrative.By combining some previously known information with the results of more recent researches of archival documents, relevant records, books and newspapers, the fascinating story of a small village in the Holme Valley is now revealed.
