Huddersfield Local History Society is a membership organisation for anybody and everybody interested in the history of the town. Our established
activities include monthly talks from September to May; a summer outing; an autumn seminar; an annual journal, free to members; and a series of booklets. We are keen to recruit new
members and to develop opportunities for members to share their interests in local history and work together to find out more about our fascinating town.
Founded in 1988, the Friends of Oakwell Hall and Country Park are a voluntary support group for this wonderfully authentic 16th Century Manor House and
its surrounding 110 acres of country park.

The Calderdale Companion is aimed at:
· Anyone with an interest in the local history of the Halifax and Calderdale district of West Yorkshire, no
matter whether as an active pursuit or as an armchair enthusiasm · Tourists who are visiting or intend to visit the beautiful
Calderdale district – you might be interested in our entries on Calderdale for Motorists, and Things to see in Calderdale · Anyone
with recent or distant roots and links with this part of the world – for this group of readers, I have included a number of historical entries and information which might otherwise
be inaccessible to overseas visitors · Anyone who already lives in Halifax and Calderdale and wants to know just that bit more about
what's all around them · Anyone who is tracing their family tree and needs some explanation of the terms and the terminology which
they encounter in old documents · Anyone who is fascinated by local and historical trivia · Anyone
who wants an explanation of the terms which are likely to be encountered when reading the works of the Brontės, Anne Lister's journals, or other pre-20th century works · Anyone who knows anything – about Halifax, Calderdale, the people or the places – which seems interesting to them and which is hard to find. I am particularly aware that many older people have memories and stories which should be recorded... before it's too late · Anyone who just wants to settle – or start – an argument in the pub
