Manorial Village

Farnley Tyas, against its lovely woodland setting, is as fair a village as may be found in the West Riding. Its history goes back into the mists of time like the origin of the family of Tyas (Teutonicus) which forms part of its name. Farnley Tyas, like Huddersfield, is mentioned in the Domesday Book. It subsequently passed to the Dartmouths, and the fourth Earl built St. Lucius's (seen here), which has a fine east window in his memory. The church, opened in 1840, has some association with figures in the Oxford Movement.
