Kirklees Curiosities

The Kirklees Curiosities web site was created by Linda Smith and Carol Hardy of Huddersfield Local Studies Library.

This website has been created to record any oddities in the Kirklees area of England which may easily disappear from local knowledge unless we record them now. Things like old, fading business signs painted onto buildings, village stocks, old lettering on pavements or post boxes or manhole covers. In fact, any kind of oddity which may not survive and which would be of interest to anyone exploring this region's past. Our intention is to photograph them and record them as a lasting reminder that they once existed. In addition we will tell you a little bit about each of them. Their history is inextricably interwoven with the history of Kirklees.
