About the Museum

Oakwell Hall was built by John Batt in 1583 and is now run as a 'living museum' furnished as the Batt family home in the 1690s Thanks to only minor alterations over the years and a fine collection of period furniture, the Hall offers visitors a real insight into a post English Civil War household. Charlotte Bronte was so inspired by the house during her visits in the 19th century that she featured it as "Fieldhead" in her classic novel Shirley. The restored gardens are well worth a visit, and over 100 acres of Green Flag award winning country park include a visitor centre, gift shop, café, nature trail, picnic sites and a playground designed for children of all abilities.
