The Villas of Edgerton: Home to Huddersfield’s Victorian Elite was written by David Griffiths and published in June 2017 by the Huddersfield Civic Society. Original photographs were taken by Andrew Caveney.
Privilege, power and privacy were of the essence in Huddersfield’s elite suburb. This richly illustrated history of the district’s development and its grand houses documents their Victorian and Edwardian residents’ leading roles in trade and industry, politics, education, churches, sport and more. It includes a house-by-house tour of Edgerton’s architectural heritage, still remarkably well-preserved in a mature wooded landscape.
