Woodford Short History


This short history draws heavily on Brenda Courtie’s “The Story of Woodford cum Membris” and on Jim Anscomb’s “Woodford cum Membris and the Great Central Railway”. It covers the most important parts of Woodford Halse’s history but much more is known about the village, its history, its buildings and people that is not mentioned here.

To locate buildings, modern street names have been used, although these may not have been in use at the time of the building’s construction.
