HUDDERSFIELD & DISTRICT HISTORY
A native of Lindley, I had from my teenage years a strong interest in local history. Initially this was directed only at Lindley, but soon expanded to include Huddersfield and eventually the surrounding areas.
Whilst living in Lindley I wrote quite widely in the field of local history (bibliography). When I removed to Ireland in 1992 I had much research material, on this and other topics, which I felt I might get to work on in the future; as this begins to look less likely I have thought it would be useful to make the material available on the internet.
All are welcome to make use of it for non-commercial purposes, as I have utilised the researches of others, giving only due acknowledgement.
