Haworth, Oxenhope & Stanbury From Old Photographs
Volume 2: Trade & Industry
Steven Wood


Haworth is well known throughout the world as the home of the Brontë sisters. It is less well known as the largest village of the three that make up the ancient township of Haworth. Here, and in the earlier companion volume, the whole township is represented in an extensive and wide-ranging collection of old photographs. A great many of the photographs in this second book are very little known and will be new to most readers.

In this book readers will find a further 300 photographs of the villages of Haworth, Oxenhope and Stanbury, of their shops, public houses, farms, quarries, mills, reservoirs, gas works, roads, bridges and railways.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Steven Wood was born and raised in the Worth Valley and has been living in Haworth for over twenty years. He was educated at Keighley Boys’ Grammar School and Leeds Polytechnic. His working life was spent in hospital and university laboratories.

Since retiring from Bradford University’s School of Pharmacy about seventeen years ago he has devoted himself to the study of the history of the Haworth area. Extensive walking and field work in the upper Worth valley have given him a detailed knowledge of the area. This has been backed up by hundreds of hours of research in libraries and archive offices.

He regularly leads historical walks in the area and gives talks on its history. He has published four books on the history of the Haworth area.
