The old photos below are from several contributors. Most are from The Haxey and Westwoodside Heritage Society and others from Alan Holgate the latter having a large collection of old Isle photos here: https://axholmecameraman.shutterfly.com/oldislepics

You can see that most of the photos refer to parts of the village. This is because Westwoodside is a combination of the historical hamlets of Park, Newbigg, Nethergate, Upperthorpe and Commonside. These names persist, as you can see on a modern road map of the area (courtesy of Bing maps) but were once very clearly delineated as you can see on the old Ordinance Survey map of about 1880.

All the old photos are grouped together as far as possible into the old hamlet names. Many of the captions are inadequate and if you can help to improve them please let us know. Email roger@haxeywalkers.co.uk
