Heyrod Mill

'Farm Cottage' or it’s original name (according to records) was 'Heyrod Hall Farm Lodge' The house is still here but sadly the barn and outbuildings no longer exist.  There is a very interesting feature set in the boundary wall above the property.  I believe this to be called a 'Monks Hole' which is infact a tunnel that cuts under the coach track beneath what was originally the coach house, eventually appearing in the basement of the Old Hall.

The history of this tiny part of the village is well documented in our local libraries.  A fascinating read i.e. the origin of where and why 'flaggy fields' got it's name.  The times when Stamford Forest ran the length of the valley the historic resident's of Heyrod Hall and Staly Hall and their in fighting.  These Halls once sat proud in all their glory, on either side of the valley. they were known as the gateway to Cheshire.  Wakefield Road was once, pretty much a dirt road, way before the railway cut through the village. This road served as  an important transport link to West Yorkshire and over the pennines.  We can all remember, West Yorkshire once started a few miles up the road in Saddleworth.....
