The village hall was first seen in 1973.

In 2015, the wedding reception of Pete Barton and Debbie Dingle was held at the village hall. The village hall was tragically damaged when a helicopter plunged onto the roof. The helicopter was hit by a gas canister due to an explosion while travelling to Emmerdale as the wedding gift for Pete and Debbie. The village hall was destroyed when the helicopter plummeted to the floor and caused a massive explosion which ripped through the hall. Months later, it was rebuilt and a memorial service was held for those who died in the disaster.
