Welcome to the new Oswaldkirk website
Whether you are an established resident of Oswaldkirk, or newly arrived, we hope that this website will provide information of some benefit or importance as you go about your business in this, sometimes not so quiet, corner of ‘God‘s Own County.’
Some particulars may already be familiar to you, whilst others may have remained
completely unknown – until now!
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’s 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.
