Welcome to the Old School Room in Haworth

Keighley Town Investment Plan Grant

The Old School Room has applied for a grant from the Keighley Town Investment Plan to repair the roof of the main hall. You may have noticed we need the odd bucket around to collect rainwater.
We need your help to move this application along. You can only do this by selecting our project on the Keighley Town Investment Plan response page.
All the Haworth projects are listed in Category Three which is Community and Enterprise. The Old School Room and the Village Hall have been lumped together with five other projects.
We believe the three projects in Haworth are worthwhile and important for the Village.
If you have five minutes to spare could we ask you either click on the link below or Google Keighley Town Investment Plan and complete the form and, if you agree with us, consider selecting the projects in Haworth? Closing date for filling the form in is January 4th.

 

The Old School Room

Situated between Haworth Parish Church and the Brontë Parsonage Museum the Old School Room is one of the most important historical buildings in the area. Built by Patrick Brontë in 1832 and taught at by all his famous children, it is an integral part of the Brontë landscape/story. Further details are available on our History page.

Since 2011 the Old School Room has been managed by a small charity, made up of local people whose aims are to conserve and maintain the building for future generations, and build on the one hundred and eighty years service to the community the building has already given. For further details, please refer to the dropdown menu provided above, under Details.

The spacious historic hall and fully equipped kitchen are available to HIRE for functions*, meetings, celebrations, displays etc at an affordable rate. For details, please visit our bookings page.
