History of Oxenhope

The village where I live has a history as a mill town, with most of the mills having been knocked down or converted into flats. To my knowledge (from what my parents have told me) there used to be a lot more going on in Oxenhope.


The map is from the 1852 Ordanance Survey map, showing Oxenhope as it was then. The earliest known mention of Oxenhope is in the 1191 Pipe Rolls.

I have decided to do a project of sorts, writing different posts about the different buildings of Oxenhope that are no longer there.
