Discovering Old Huddersfield

Extract from Discovering Old Huddersfield (1993-2002) by Gordon & Enid Minter:

A little further along on the left of Honley Road (near to a public footpath sign) some low ruined walls and a doorway are all that remains of Farnley's Pinfold. Despite its dilapidated condition this pinfold is much more recognisable as such than the one passed earlier at Lepton.
