Pigot and Co.'s National Commercial Directory of 1828-9: Lockwood & Honley

The following section is reproduced from Pigot and Co.'s National Commercial Directory of 1828-9.


LOCKWOOD AND HONLEY

Lockwood, a village, in the parish of Almondbury, and Wapentake of Agbrigg, is about a mile and a half distant from the populous and nourishing Town of Huddersfield ; beautifully situated in the valley of Holme, and in the midst of a romantic and finely sheltered country, with excellent roads diverging in every direction. The great attraction of this place is its spa and baths, of which mention has been made in the account of Huddersfield. For the accommodation of the increasing population a new Church is about to be erected, and for the convenience of visitors a new inn is on the eve of being opened ; indeed, improvements are rapidly making in this place, which are materially assisted by its prosperous manufacturers, being of the same character as those of its extensive neighbour, Huddersfield. The number of inhabitants in the village, in 1821, amounted to 1,881.

HONLEY, a manufacturing village, in the same parish and wapentake as Lockwood, is about 3 miles S. of Huddersfield, containing a chapel of ease under Almondbury (of which the Rev. Richard Smith is curate) and a chapel belonging to the Methodists. Fancy and other woollen goods are made here to a great extent, and there are in the vicinity excellent stone quarries. The lord of the manor is Lord Dartmouth. The population of the village, in 1821, was 3,501.
