Atmosphere and residents[edit]

Norwood Green has declined in terms of liveliness, unlike its neighbours such as Wyke and Hipperholme. Earning the nickname the 'retirement village', due to its vast population of elderly. Many experiencing the fresh countryside and lack of people, agree Norwood Green holds a 'timeless and peaceful' atmosphere, free from noise and traffic.


Formerly a potential rival to Halifax, with plans to extend the village into a town, did not materialise. 'The Village of Peace', had a local shop, school and Police station, with the community spirit in full flow. Judy Woods, is the graveyard to old coal mines, dating back to pre 1900s.
