A Catalogue of the Textile Mills and Factories of the Huddersfield Area c.1790-1914

"A Catalogue of the Textile Mills and Factories of the Huddersfield Area c.1790-1914" is a catalogue of references to mills and factories compiled by local historian Alan Brooke:

The first version of this Catalogue was compiled in 1995 as spin-off from research into the social and political history of Huddersfield for my PhD thesis. [...] The references are drawn from published accounts, mainly in local newspapers, but also from books, and from documentary sources such as solicitors’ papers, estate records and business records in Huddersfield Library or West Yorkshire Archive Service.

The catalogue is available on Brooke's web site and, due to its length, is divided into three sections:

  • Part One — Acre Mill (Lindley) to Grove Mill (Leeds Road)
  • Part Two — Haigh Factory (Marsden) to Rushfield Mill (Almondbury)
  • Part Three — Saint Helen's Mill (Almondbury) to Zetland Mill (Huddersfield)
