Pictures of Almondbury
in the county of West Yorkshire
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.

Random England fact:
The Equestrian term "canter" comes from the name Canterbury. Pilgrims on their way to Canterbury to visit the shrine of famous martyr Thomas à Becket, would ride at a "Canterbury Trot" as they approached the city, which was less tiring than a gallop. The term was later shortened to canter.
