Welcome to the Illingworth Gaol and Stocks Preservation Group

We are a local community group that has been set up in an attempt to save and preserve the Grade II* Gaol and Stocks in Illingworth; a small village in the town of Halifax in West Yorkshire.

Our aim is to restore the Gaol and Stocks to its former glory and eventually use the building for educational and community purposes.

We want to ensure that our local history is not destroyed but is preserved for future generations.
