Click the images below to see and read about Ackworth people - both 'famous' (nationwide and historic) people who resided here at some time, as well as our gallery of those lovely 'every day' Ackworth folk who are no longer with us but who are remembered for their contribution to the village.

If you have a photo and a short piece of information about someone from Ackworth's past who you feel deserves to be added to our gallery then please email it to
