The old village of Thorpe Hesley, once the home of nail-makers, coal miners, farmers and smallholders, has been engulfed by modern residential development. Its smaller neighbour, Scholes is now a dormitory village, referred to by some as 'millionaires' row'. In great contrast, the village of Wentworth owes its main features to its function as an estate village, in which workers on the Wentworth-Fitzwilliam estate were housed in close proximity to the big house, Wentworth Woodhouse.The photographs, old and new, selected for inclusion in the book are divided into four sections: village scenes, landmarks, the workplace and the people. They constitute a comprehensive pictorial record of the communities during a period of profound economic and social change. Thorpe Hesley, Scholes & Wentworth Through Time will be of lasting interest to long-established residents, relative newcomers and the many regular visitors to the area.
