Demand for property high in famous pie village! 

The latest development from award winning property developer Conroy Brook is cooking up interest in the historic pie village of Denby Dale.

New homes at WoodNook in Denby Dale, West Yorkshire

The company has acquired a piece of land at Wood Nook, Denby Dale, for its next flagship development, 29 four bedroom family homes.

The development’s show home is expected to be ready for viewing by early summer 2019 but already five properties in the first phase of the development have been reserved.

“Because we have enjoyed such success with our sites in the nearby communities of Hoylandswaine, Ingbirchworth, Upperthong and right now in Stocksmoor, we were certain that Denby Dale would prove similarly popular and early interest certainly suggests that we were right,” said Conroy Brook Sales and Marketing Director Jon Bailey.

“We are building on land that we bought from local farmer Peter Schofield who, at the age of 90, has lived in the same property most of his life and will continue to do so, we hope, for many years to come.

“Ours is a family–owned business that has won more than 50 awards for design and construction excellence.

“For over 40 years we have created outstanding, craftsmen-built developments of the highest quality and we are confident that this Denby Dale development will be a great addition to our portfolio of developments in this part of Yorkshire.

“The village is a great location in an increasingly popular area due to its proximity to Sheffield, Leeds and even Manchester, thanks to the nearby M1 and M62 motorways.”

The Denby Dale pie tradition started in 1788 to celebrate the recovery of George III from mental illness and since then ten record-breaking pies have been baked, the most recent - weighing a tasty 13 tons - in the year 2000 to celebrate the Millennium.
