Built in Charles I.'s Reign

Huddersfield has little to show in the way of ancient buildings, but here is a sturdy half-timbered house of the seventeenth century which has survived. It is Wormall's Hall, at Almondbury, now the Almondbury Conservative Club. It bears the date 1631, and was the residence of Isaac and Israel Wormall, members of an ancient Almondbury family who were great benefactors of the district. Formerly Wormall's Hall had gardens and a summer-house commanding lovely views of the woods of Farnley.
