The Pack Horse Yard is the least changed part of Huddersfield. Connecting Kirkgate and King Street, it has often been suggested that it would make an ideal shopping thoroughfare, with perhaps an arcade. But the owners have resisted such improvements, and the yard remains pretty much as it was in the days before railways, when passengers joined stage coaches here. There was a booking office at the Pack Horse Hotel, where Interesting relics of coaching days are preserved.
