Town of Huddersfield
The town of Huddersfield (population about 145,000) is part of the Kirklees metropolitan borough in the county of West Yorkshire in the North of England. Kirklees was formed in 1974 from the merger of the county boroughs of Huddersfield and Dewsbury with a number of smaller local authorities, all of which had been part of the West Riding of Yorkshire. In 1986, Kirklees became a unitary authority when West Yorkshire lost its administrative status and became purely a ceremonial county. Huddersfield had been a county borough since 1889.
