Welcome to the Oswaldkirk village website

Os-Gen 2024 Edition

A revised version of Os-Gen, the village information booklet had been published.

Os-Gen was originally created in the early 2000s as a paper booklet for the benefit of those
recently embraced into the bosom of our small community. It has expanded enormously but
is still far from comprehensive and only one of many sources of information. If all else fails
and you can’t find what you’re looking for just ask around.

Oswaldkirk – A living village

This is the title of Oswaldkirk’s history book, published to worthy fanfare in 2002 and updated in early 2012 (copies are available for £5 each). A copy of the original version, if you don’t already have one, is available to peruse in the Parish Archive, along with early photographs and many other items of historical interest. It is currently located at Ledbrooke House. If you wish to consult the archive to learn more about the village and  its history, contact David Goodman on 788401.

To this day, Oswaldkirk truly is a living village, with many people actively involved in helping to generate a genuine community spirit. There are enough village events and cheery waves and conversations to make everyone feel very welcome. It is hoped that you too, will feel part of the community, however long you live here.
