Founded in 1988, the Friends of Oakwell Hall and Country Park are a voluntary support group for this wonderfully authentic 16th Century Manor House in Yorkshire - and for its surrounding 110 acres of country park. You can see some of us on this video, talking about our work.

Friends work closely with the dedicated staff at Oakwell and provide assistance both inside and outside the Hall..
