About Woodhead Investments

Woodhead Investments is a property investment and development company based in Wakefield, with a long tradition of family-run values and a proven record of success.

Founded by husband-and-wife team Melvyn and Susan Woodhead in 1965, they originally practised as a Residential and Commercial Estate Agent in Wakefield. Melvyn sold the agency in 1982 to give greater attention to Woodhead Investments. Woodhead Investments then began expanding into the investment and development of commercial, agricultural and residential property across Wakefield and the wider Yorkshire area.

Today, Woodhead Investments is focused on the buying and selling of properties for trading profit as well as long term investment. The company owns a diverse collection of property and is continuously pursuing opportunities for acquisition.

With over 50 years experience, Woodhead Investments is now one of Yorkshire’s leading property companies and has formed incredibly strong working relationships with other professional property people.

It is from these humble beginnings and with lots of hard work that the company is today one of Britain’s top 1000 private companies in terms of asset value.

Featured Testimonial

“Thank you for your help in completing the sale on Bilton Lane, Harrogate (a house subject to a regulated tenancy). It was very easy doing business with you and I did appreciate your communication which kept me up to date and informed especially as the process had to be conducted from half the world away and  was quite different to way things are done here. Best wishes to you and your staff for Christmas, for me I will be on a beach in Australia with glass in hand and a barbecue in the background.”
