Almondbury Visit|Work|Live

Welcome to Almondbury - birthplace of Huddersfield

The pretty, upbeat, picturesque village of Almondbury lies just two miles on the south side of Huddersfield.

We have quaint historical buildings and a rich medieval history all set amidst rolling hills and countryside. It’s a great place to live and work and we love to welcome visitors. Almondbury is the birthplace for the town of Huddersfield but because of the geographical layout of the land the Town Centre was built on the lower ground at the "bottom of the hill". Today, the village of Almondbury has developed and grown, yet has retained its characterful appearance and atmosphere. It provides a range of businesses and facilities within the village centre and beyond.

Almondbury is a great destination for health and beauty treatments; has an active library with a range of activities including a local history group as well as a Men's group; has award winning food retailers; a wide range of shopping and recreation facilities; and superb venues to have a drink, a meal and enjoy live music. We even have our own annual Jazz festival.

If sport is your passion we have 2 cricket clubs, a swimming pool and 2 green grass bowling clubs, plus football teams and a boxing club. Walks in and around the village, not to mention the nearby hills, will keep you fit!

And at the end of all that if you need a quiet space you can relax and unwind in one of the 3 churches in our village.

There really is something for all tastes in Almondbury. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Almondbury Business and Community Association would like to thank all those who have helped over the past year to get the association formed and up and running. It has a been a massive team effort, all by volunteers who have given their time and services for free. Valuable information given from outside the ward from June McLean, Honley Business Association What's Happening in Honley, Farnley Tyas Community Group and Yetton Together has been much appreciated. We would also like to thank the Ward Councillors, Cllrs Bernard William McGuin, Alison Munro and Paola Davis for their input and support.
We wish all our members, community partners and individuals a Happy New Year.
Looking forward to 2020 and continuing to make Almondbury a better place to visit, work and live. #keepitlocal
