Almondbury is one of the oldest and prettiest of the villages dominating the edge of the Pennine moors. Many of these old villages have long been absorbed by the expansion of the town of Huddersfield but some of the houses, many with old mullioned windows behind which the cloth that gained the area its early reputation as a fine centre for wool worsted was woven, can still be seen.
Historically the first market held at Almondbury was in the 13th century when cloth was traded in the churchyard with the merchants using gravestones for tables. Huddersfield market did not develop until 1672, and later in the 19th century mills grew up along the river. Almondbury is also known for Castle Hill, said to have Roman connections.
Today, this interesting village, backed by the urban sprawl of Huddersfield offers the visitor fine countryside to explore, an old church to visit and interesting timbered buildings. It gives easy access to the hauntingly beautiful northern moors of the Peak District National Park and to the town of Holmfirth famous as the setting for the celebrated television series Last of the Summer Wine. You can also join the long march of the Pennine Way as it winds its way towards the Yorkshire Dales. The lovely Calder Valley is within easy reach, so too is The National Coal Mining Museum which tells much of the regions history and heritage.
