Hello Oakworth!

11th December 2016
We’re carrying out a complete re-write of the site which will mean going back to a site purely for information on the Village Society and what we do for Oakworth.
All notifications about Oakworth Village Society’s events will be on here.

Please bear with us as we get everything online in the next couple of weeks. We hope to have it all finished by Christmas 2016.

    I am interested in discovering the previous location of a house known as Pinewood oakworth. I have a photograph of it but have been unable to locate it. It was at one stage the home of my great grandfather Eustace Ilingworth I believe but may also have been some form of school or institution Many thanks for any leads James

    Hi, Not sure if you have got this sorted yet but if you follow the main road through Oakworth towards Colne, you will pass The Grouse Inn on your left and approx 1 mile further on you will see a sign on your right for Highfield House Farm and Livery. Take this unmade track. Park at the bottom of the drive up to Highfield House and you will see a white detached house in front of you. There is a footpath that goes past and around the back of this house, you will go through a gate into a large paddock that has a large number of ‘weathered’ pine trees, this is know as pinewood and if you follow the track you will see remains around you of what used to be Pinewood House. Hope this helps. Paul

    Thanks Paul, I knew it was up there somewhere, but never quite sure. I’ve found it on an old map now. I’m surprised nobody has tried to build on it as it will be a brownfield site. Maybe there’s an access issue.
    Cheers,
    Andy.
