Buildings of Huddersfield

Welcome to the Buildings of Huddersfield project. The project explores the development of central Huddersfield through planning and other records.

The project encompasses the area of the central wards of the former Huddersfield Borough.

The core data is from approvals from Huddersfield Building Registers of 1868–1974 and all listed buildings.

The Buildings

Many will still be standing and most of these will have been altered.

The location or address in each record is given as written. The modern address may be different.

In some cases approved applications were not executed and many of the buildings erected will have been lost through demolition through both planned redevelopment and accident.

Searching the Site

The rule of the shorter and simpler the search term, the more hits you are likely to get applies.

To help searches we have sought to standardise the spelling of street names, abbreviations and punctuation.

You can also browse lists of applicants, architects, contractors, occupants, and streets.


We want to grow and improve the information and the scope of what is known about buildings use and occupants. Please tell us of your experience via this message board.

We will also be pleased to receive any corrections, contributions and ideas for development.
