About Us


This website is provided by Woodsetts Local History Society, for the village of Woodsetts, South Yorkshire. On the left hand menu you will see links to the businesses and organisations who support Woodsetts.com.

Originally a farming community, it has expanded into a modest commuter base serving Worksop and Sheffield. There is one pub: The Butcher's Arms, and a primary school: Woodsetts Junior and Infant School. There is also a small shopping precinct and a church.

To the north of Woodsetts is the smaller satellite settlement of Gildingwells.

The first written record of Woodsetts is in a 13th century quitclaim (dated 1220) held at the Derbyshire Record Office (Hatfield de Rodes papers) where a bovate of land 'in the territory of Lyndrick, in Wudsetes' is mentioned. Other geographical locations mentioned nearby confirm that it is Woodsetts being referred to.
