Description

Huddersfield has a surprisingly rich architectural heritage. Developed mainly in a period of explosive growth during Georgian and Victorian times, it has many buildings of very high quality. This book describes and illustrates around 200 of the best and most attractive structures to be seen in the town. It looks at the magnificent buildings of Victorian Huddersfield, at the much older manor and gentry houses, at churches, chapels and public buildings, at houses and at twentieth-century additions to the town, together with the buildings of the wool textile industry that provided the backbone of the town's Victorian expansion. It will be a useful guide for those wishing to explore and learn more about Huddersfield's history through its buildings.show more
