Alma Villa, Lockwood Road, Rashcliffe
- location: 122 Lockwood Road, Rashcliffe
- status: still exists
- category: property
Built prior to 1890 as a detached property, Alma Villa was the residence of railway employee George Rolling Dransfield and his family at the time of the 1891 Census. They later moved to 27 Water Street, Huddersfield.
By 1911, master tailor Charles Jackman (born near Holmfirth) was living at the property with his family, probably using it as a shop. Jackman had previously lived at 166 Lockwood Road and, by the 1920s, the family had moved to 106 Lockwood Road.
By 1937, the property had become a bakery and confectionery run by "master baker" Fred Buckingham and his wife Constance. The wording of the 1939 Register and 1937 Huddersfield Directory suggests that it was Constance Alice Buckingham who ran the business. The 1956 Huddersfield Street Directory named Constance's business as "C.A. Buckingham & Co., Bakers & Confectioners".
In more recent years, the property has been a takeaway.
