Longroyd and pilling house skelmanthorpe huddersfield
« on: Thursday 22 September 22 17:37 BST (UK) »
Hello there,

I'm a handy man from longroyd and pilling house in skelmanthorpe, Huddersfield which is now a residential care home. The residents are very curious of the history of both buildings. I'd like to show them any old photographs of the home along with information about the homes. Does anyone know any information or where I can get it?

Welcome to Rooschat  :D

It may be worth looking at this thread https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=837263.0

I haven't gone through all four pages to see what exactly is there.  In the meantime I will have a look and see what else I may be able to find.

Might be worth getting in touch with Huddersfield Local History Society:-

https://www.huddersfieldhistory.org.uk/

Scroll down the page and under Supporting Research you will find a contact us button in blue.  They may be able to help you or suggest whom you could contact for further information on this house.

Another option is the Records office who may be able to assist:-

https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/county-record-office

Again scroll down the page and there is a Contact Us option under Extra Links.

I would contact the Huddersfield Local History Library & see if they have any photos or information.

Hello JMills123 and welcome to RootsChat from me too.

I think it sounds like RootsChatter avm228 has quite a bit of knowledge about Pilling House built by the FIELD family of Skelmanthorpe. (from info on the thread linked by Girl Guide in reply#1.

I'll message avm228 so that she becomes aware of your query.  :)
