Listed Buildings

As the listed building project was to discover and highlight all the listed buildings within Batley and Birstall, we have been amazed just how many buildings and monuments we have.

Our project has taken us on a journey of discovery with local groups and people helping out along the way, giving their views and accounts of many of the places that are part of our historical heritage.

With the help of the grounds from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Kirklees Council we have produced 2 DVDs and a picture publications of all of these interesting places.

Through watching our DVDs you can discover the history behind John Nelson, the great Methodist preacher, and Joseph Priestley, the man who discovered oxygen. You can also learn about the history of Oakwell Hall, which is the only Grade 1 listed building in Birstall.
