Alongside Trinity Church, Ossett is home to another Anglican Church, Christ Church and a place of Catholic worship. Ossett is well known for its beer festival that occurs annually on the August bank holiday at Brewers Pride Pub and Ossett also has a number of other annual events that helps make the town an interesting and unique place to live. These events, including Ossett Gala, are frequented by the local Orchestra – the Wakefield Orchestral Wind – that are local to Ossett. This local band helps provide Ossett with a lovely community feel and makes the town’s annual events all the more memorable.

In 2012, Ossett experienced severe flooding damaging a number of properties across the town, including many on Littlefield Grove. Although the flood waters have since receded and the council has put in place new flood security measures, damages in the form of damp, mould and rot can linger pervasively – particularly in properties managed by inattentive landlords. This is one reason that reallymoving.com highly recommends the services of our expert Chartered Surveyors as the Building Survey they provide will comprehensively detail any damages to your prospective property – including those cause by flooding.
At reallymoving.com, you can compare quotes for up to four Chartered Surveyors which will help you save money on your move to Ossett. With their support you can be confident that you move to Ossett will be completed without any unforeseen surprises.
