In earlier days,[when?] the Westwood side of the civil parish of Haxey was composed of the hamlets of Park (bef. 1882),[1] Newbigg, Nethergate, Upperthorpe[1] (or Overthorpe) and Commonside.[citation needed]

The village has a primary school.

The community is involved in an annual game over seven hundred years old called Haxey Hood.

Bradley Benjamin Thomas Anderson Musgreaves was born here in 1903. His family home has been turned into a local museum along with a conjoined post office.
