A selection of photographs showing views of Woodland, past and present. All archive photographs date from the early 1900s. Click on an image to see a larger view.

Edge Hotel early 1900s Edge Hotel today

The Edge Hotel pub, early 1900s. The Edge is to the left with the old car parked outside. Right is Thompson's General Dealers. The middle building is West Pitts colliery offices....

....and the same view today. The old shop and the colliery offices are now private housing but the view is essentially unchanged.

The Royal early 1900s The Royal today

The Royal, another pub, early 1900s. The Royal is the middle building.

Since this photo was taken the Royal has been developed into a private residence.

Woodland early 1900s Woodland today

Looking west along the village from The Edge Hotel (right, out of picture). The building with the notice board attached was then the village police house. Notice the unmade road in the foreground....

....and the same view today. There is no longer a police house in the village and the roads are somewhat different but again the view is recognisable.

Woodland early 1900s Woodland today

Looking west along the village's only street, early 1900s. Woodland Fell, an extensive area of moorland can be seen in the background....

....and the same view today. The cemetery now contains a war memorial, visible to the centre/right of the picture.

St. Mary's church early 1900s St. Mary's church today

Woodland Mission Church (St. Mary's), a corrugated iron church erected at the turn of the century (see 'Village History' page)....

....and the same view today. The original bell is still in use and was cast in Woodland Back Pit (see 'Village History' page).
