Is one of the five principal market towns in the central part of the West Riding — it is in the wapentake of Agbrigg, and in the liberty of the honour of Pontefract, 8 miles from Halifax; 16 from Leeds; 13 from Wakefield ; 16 from Bradford ; 24 from Manchester: and 188 from London. The town which derives its name from Oder or Hudder, the first Saxon colonist in the place, stands on the river Colne, which rising near the source of the Don above Holmfirth, falls into the Calder near Nunbrook. The valley formed by this stream, with a small quantity of level ground upon its banks, comprehends the parish of Huddersfield. Naturally, this part of the country is barren and unproductive, but its local advantages for manufacture, arising, principally from its coal and waterfalls, has raised it to the rank of one of the principal seats of the woollen trade in the kingdom, and where men congregate in large numbers, the soil seldom remains for any long time unproductive. Formerly oats, and those of the coarsest kind, formed the principal part of the grain grown in this parish, and the sarcasm cast by Dr. Johnson, upon the Scotch when he defined oats, as food for man in Scotland, and for horses in England, applied with as much force to the parish of Huddersfield, as to the parish of Glasgow, but now, both wheat and barley crops are raised in good perfection, in "the vale of Colne," and the wheaten loaf is as often to be seen as the oaten cake, upon the table of the inhabitants. The great, and almost the sole proprietor, Sir John Ramsden, Bart., whose family had a grant of the market by patent, dated as early as the 23d of Charles II. The revenue derived from this property, by the Ramsden family, is at the present day more than princely. The inland navigation of Huddersfield, affords to its trade the mast ample facilities, both to the East and to the West. The Ramsden Canal, which commences at the King's Mills, close to the town, crosses the high road to Halifax, and passing Black-house-brook, near Deighton, unites with the Calder at Cooper's bridge. In this way a communication is opened, with the great trading towns of Halifax, Wakefield, Leeds, and York, as well as Hull, from whence the merchandise is shipped to foreign countries. The Huddersfield canal, which joins the Ramsden canal, at the south end of the town, conveys goods westward, by way of Longwood, Slaithwaite, and Marsden. There is a tunnel, nearly three miles and a half in length, cut through the English Appenines, to within two miles of Dob-cross, from which the canal, after crossing the river Tame, in several of its windings, comes within a mile of Lydgate, by Mosley and Staley bridge, and unites with the Ashton and Oldham canal, near Ashton-under-Line. The navigation to Manchester, is then direct, and from thence the communication by water, is made daily to Liverpool, the great depot of commerce on the western coast. The Huddersfield canal has answered better for the town, and for the country through which it passes, than for the proprietors. It has been a losing speculation ; and ages will probably pass away, before it pays common interest, for the money invested in the under taking. The manufactures of this town and neighbourhood, are principally woollens, and consist of narrow and broad cloths, serges, kerseymeres, and various other woollen fabrics. Formerly, the buyers and sellers of cloth, met in an open square ; but, in the year 1765, a commodious hall was erected for their accommodation, by Sir John Ramsden. This building, which is two stories high, forms a large circle, with a diametrical range one story high, which divides the interior parts into two semicircles. The light is wholly admitted from within, there being no windows on the outside, by which construction security is afforded against fire and depredation. The hall is subdivided into streets, and the benches or stalls are generally filled with cloths, lying close together upon edge, with the bosom up for inspection. Here, in brisk times, an immense quantity of business is done in a few hours. The doors are opened early in the morning of the market day, which is Tuesday, and closed at half-past 12 o'clock at noon ; they are again opened at 3 in the afternoon for the removal of cloth, &c. Above the door is a handsome cupola, in which a clock and bell are placed, for the purpose of regulating the time of commencing and terminating the business of the day. A century ago, the population and opulence of Huddersfield did not amount to more than one-half of either Halifax or Wakefield, but it is now equal to the larger of them, and promises fair to maintain the commercial and manufacturing consequence which it has so deservedly acquired. According to a calculation, made by Dr. Walker, who has published a topographical account of Huddersfield, it would appear, that the place is healthy, in a very eminent degree, and that on an average of 5 years, the annual number of deaths in proportion to the population, was only as 1 is to 51 and a fraction, but this return is so evidently fallacious, from such of "the Dissenters and Sectaries," as bury at their own places of worship being omitted, that it is calculated only to mislead, and any person taking his estimate of the mortality of the town of Huddersfield, from the Doctor's "approximation to the truth," would approximate only to error.

Dr. Walker, with a laudable regard to public health, recommends the establishment of a House of Recovery in Huddersfield, on the plan of that at Leeds, and we unite with him most cordially in the recommendation, not only for Huddersfield, but for every large manufacturing town in the county, for we will venture to assert, as the result of much experience, that there is no public charity merely secular, which does so much good at so little cost. A favourable disposition towards this object of the Doctor's solicitude is one of the reasons for combating his mortality return ; for the opponents of a fever hospital, if any such there be, might found a triumphant objection upon the data which he has furnished, and might inquire why Huddersfield should emulate the example of Leeds in the preservation of health, seeing that they are already a great deal more healthy without such an establishment than their neighbours are with it. The proportion of deaths in Leeds being as 1 is to 40, while in Huddersfield it is only as 1 is to 54 ?

Turning from this digression, for which the occasion must form the apology, it may be observed that the history of Huddersfield does not furnish much matter for the gratification of antiquarian research, though it is an undoubted fact that the castle hill at Almondbury was, in the early age of our history, crowned with a Saxon fortress, which menaced the villages below ;[1] and that the celebrated Roman station of Cambodunum, was within the parish of Huddersfield, on the confines of Stainland, and in the township of Longwood.[2] It is also acknowledged that there are some ancient symbols of druidical worship still extant in this parish ; and that the scite of a Cromlech and several tupendous rocking stones of that kind remain to this day. Not far from Meltham there is one of these stones ; but the finest druidical remain in the parish of Huddersfield is in Golcar, on Wholestone Moor.[3] From the rolls of Richard II. it appears, that in the third year of that reign free warren in Huddersfield was granted to the prior and canons of Nostel. But before this time, so early as the year 1200, Roger de Lacy granted to William de Bellomonte, ancestor of the Beaumonts, of Whitley, a grant for his homage and service. A grant was also made by the same Roger de Lacy to Colin de Dammeville, which said Colin, as an act of gratitude to his benefactor, "gave to God, the blessed St. Mary, and the Abbots and Monks of Stanlnw, for the soul of his lord, Roger de Lacy, all his part of the said mill of Huddersfield, u on the river Caune, and 20s. annual rent."

This neighbourhood enjoys the advantage of several mineral springs, which, if not endowed with those singularly brilliant properties escribed to springs of greater fame, are important to the labouring classes, to whom access to distant water is pretty nearly impracticable. At or near Holmfirth, Lockwood, Kirkheaton, and Shithwaite are to be found springs yielding, on analysis, different proportions of sulphureous impregnations. In the township of Soyland there is a strong chalybeate ; and in Eringden, in the parish of Halifax, there is another with an impregnation slightly sulphureous as well as chalybeate.[4] Amongst the public edifices in Huddersfield are the parish church of St. Peters, and Trinity church, the latter being lately built by B. Haigh Allen, Esq. at Greenhead, at an expense of £12,000. The first stone of this edifice was laid in 1817, and the church was opened for public worship on Sunday the 10th of October, 1819, having been consecrated two days before by the Archbishop of this province. The style is Gothic, and it contains upwards of 1500 sittings, of which one-third are free seats. Its situation, which is on the North-west side of the town, is very commanding, and in every part of the surrounding country it forms a beautiful object, at once picturesque and impressive. There are also two Methodist chapels, both very commodious buildings ; one of them used by the Methodists of the Old and the other by the Methodists of the New Connexion. The former of these erections, which is situated in Queen street, has been very recently built, at an expense of £8,000, and is the largest Methodist chapel in the kingdom. It will seat 2,400 persons, and is in length 102 feet, and breadth 72 feet, exclusive of the wings. There is likewise an Independent chapel, a little out of the town at Highfield, and a Meeting House, for the Society of Friends, at the Paddock. The charitable institutions in Huddersfield are the Dispensary, established on the 12th of May, 1814, on the restoration of peace ; the Bible Society, established in 1810 ; the Religious Tract Society, established March 16, 1810 ; the National School Society, established in 1819, and the Church Missionary Association, established in 1813, besides some other charities of a more circumscribed nature, for the relief of the poor and destitute. A Company for supplying the inhabitants with gas has lately been established, and the new works are advancing rapidly towards completion. The scale of charges for the use of the gas, and the regulations for the consumers are similar to those adopted by the Gas Company in Leeds. The following population Returns for the parish of Huddersfield, in the years 1811 and 1821, will serve to exhibit the growing importance of that place.
