Dronfield Woodhouse, Derbyshire

Dronfield Woodhouse is a district of Dronfield, in North East Derbyshire, England. Its habitation has existed as early as the 11th century (Cowley Farm, to the south) and its main road features a 13th century house and a 19th century Primary School (now an elderly care home). Although Dronfield Woodhouse today constitutes the western half of the town of Dronfield, until the early 1970s it was merely a small collection of houses and farm buildings amidst farmland and woodland.
