Historic Mother Church

All Hallows' at Almondbury, is perhaps the most historic of the churches of the Huddersfield district. It was the mother church of a big parish which stretched away to the Pennines, but long since divided. The present church incorporates some interesting and unusual architectural features, but it is substantially a late Perpendicular edifice, and one of the best examples of this period of architecture (of the late Middle Ages and early Tudor period) to be found In the West Riding.
