A man has spoken of his pride after having a commemmorative plaque installed at his old family home - the third oldest building in Churwell.

Darren Spink, 45, has just finished years’ worth of renovation work at the house, on Elland Road in the village.

The house is now over 200 years old, having been built in 1813 and is a Grade II listed building. During the 19th century it acted as a tax collection point for tolls from horse and carriage owners passing through.
