Woolley village is another of the many ancient villages around Wakefield dating back to mediaeval times.

Woolley Hall dates back to the 16th century when it was acquired by the Wentworth family, who also owned Bretton Hall.

Woolley Hall

Woolley Parish Church, which would have been there in the 17th century, is surrounded by large trees and a busy road (hence no photograph), but, apart from it's setting, externally, it's appearance is almost indistinguishable from Felkirk Parish Church (and Warmfield Parish Church).
The picture below is of the old court house, which has been converted into houses.
