Oakwell Hall and Country Park

Oakwell Hall and Country Park
This beautiful Elizabethan manor house has delighted visitors for centuries. Visiting in the 19th Century, Charlotte Brontë featured it as 'Fieldhead' - the home of the heroine in 'Shirley'. Built in 1583, the hall is now set out as it would have been in tht 1690s, when it was the home of the Batt family. A mixture of authentic and reproduction furnishings provide a real insight into late 17th Century life.
