The name Sisters' Wood was given to this small, but well established, pocket of beech woodland by the Moravian settlers, and although named Sister’s Wood, it was regularly visited by both the brethren and sisters, although on alternate days. Prior to the arrival of the Moravian settlers the woodland was called Holdsworth’s Wood, named after the Holdsworth family who owned the Bankhouse Estate in the seventeenth century.
