Sharlston Parish is a village situated four miles east of Wakefield in West Yorkshire, England, and includes settlements of Old Sharlston, Sharlston Common and New Sharlston. It's population as of the 2001 census was 2,756.

[edit] History

The village of Old Sharlston has existed for over five hundred years, with the oldest known record indicating that Sharlston Old Hall was built in 1574. In the early 18th century, the village of Sharlston was acquired by the Earl of Westmorland.

Until April 1929, Sharlston formed part of the Warmfield parish, but is now managed by a Parish Council.

The village of New Sharlston was built after the Stanley Main Pit was closed in 1866. The village consists of two rows of houses which were mostly occupied by the men who worked at the collieries of the surrounding area. Although always a small village, New Sharlston witnessed rapid decline since the UK miners' strike (1984–1985) which hit Sharlston and its surrounding villages hard.
