Judy woods is a collective name for a group of woods nicknamed after Judy North, or ‘Gurt Judy’ as she was known, who sold ginger beer, parkin pigs and sticks of spice from her cottage near Horse Close Bridge in the 1850s and 60s. Judy was the second wife of Joseph North whose family had managed the “pleasure gardens” on the hillside by the bridge since the early 1800’s.
Parts of the woods are known by their own names, including: Doctor Wood, Gannerthorpe, Jagger Park Wood, Low Wood, Neddy Wood, North Brow Wood, Old Hanna Wood, Royds Hall Great Wood
