Wood Street - the heart of Wakefield

This is a Heritage Lottery funded project exploring the rich architectural and social history of Wood Street, Wakefield. In 2016 and 2017 Wakefield Council are delivering this project in partnership with Wakefield Historical Society, Wakefield Civic Society and Leeds Beckett University.

Wood Street - the Heart of Wakefield, is an inter-generational project about how people, buildings and events, on one street, helped to shape the Wakefield District. The principal objective of the project is to uncover the rich historical and heritage landscape of Wood Street and document the role this area has played in the development and governance of what is now a small city. The outputs from this work will potentially advise future considerations for this area, and will also form part of a future bid for further HLF funding.
