Ackworth is a village and civil parish in the metropolitan borough of Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England, situated between Pontefract, Barnsley and Doncaster on the small River Went. The village consists of four parts, High Ackworth, Low Ackworth, Ackworth Moor Top, and Brackenhill.[1] According to the 2001 census it had a population of 6,493,[1][2][3] increasing to 7,049 at the 2011 Census.[4] There is also a City of Wakefield Ward called Ackworth, North Elmsall and Upton. At the 2011 Census this ward had a population of 16,099.[5]

The origins of the name of the village are unclear although it is thought that the name may have derived from one of two sources; the first from the Anglo Saxon words ‘Ake’ or ‘Aken’ meaning ‘oak’ and ‘uurt’ with the word ‘worth’ meaning an enclosure or homestead;[6] the second is that it could derive from the Anglo Saxon name ‘Acca’ which when added to the word ‘worth’ could mean ‘Acca’s worth’ or ‘Acca’s enclosure’.[7] A number of place names around the area show that the Anglo Saxons had influence in the region. Words such as ‘worth’ and also ‘tun’, meaning an enclosure or farmstead, are repeatedly found in place names around the area such as Badsworth, Hemsworth and Wentworth as well as Fryston and Allerton.[6][8] The name was first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Aceuurde and it is thought it became more formalised to ‘Ackworth’ in the 1800s.[7][9]
