This website is here to provide information about heritage groups in West Yorkshire. We need folks out there to let us know about these groups as well as one-off events, courses and other interesting activities.
This week I have heard about the Friends of Oakwell Hall and Country Park and also about the Friends of Red House. Both these organisations have been added to the list of West Yorkshire Heritage Groups. I would also recommend you to have a look at their websites from the links on this post.
