Vintage Badsworth

The village has a long history and has connections with Nostell Priory.  Rogerthorpe Manor was once a gentleman's club and Badsworth Hall was the setting for the (in)famous Badsworth Hunt. The photo collection here dates from 1910s to the 1960s.  If you have any old or earlier photographs of Badsworth, please let us know.
