About Huddersfield

This town has connections to the wool trade that stretch back over several centuries. Wool was spun and woven as a cottage industry until the 18th-century when textile mills took over. This brought renewed wealth and stability to the area and Huddersfield began to flourish. The opening of the rail line in 1847 was a huge advantage to Huddersfield, goods manufactered here were more easily transported to other parts of the country.

Huddersfield was very much a town of towering chimney stacks that echoed the work of the mills, some which still exist. Today it is also a town of commerce and there are chemical and engineering works here.

The town has many fine buildings and these include; The Victorian Railway Station built in 1847, the Market Hall built in 1870, the lovely old church of St.Peter's built 1838 and the Cloth Hall built as a centre for the cloth industry in 1776. Tolson Memorial Hall and the Art Gallery that exhibits a fine collection of paintings including some by L.S.Lowry are also well worth a visit. Worthy of note is the fact that the handsome Town Hall which dates 19th-century is the home of the internationally renowned Huddersfield Choral Society.

Huddersfield is a lively and interesting town that offers a rich cultural experience. It has good restaurants, inns and public houses, cinema's, night clubs, good sporting facilities and excellent shopping.
