I am researching my family history originating in the Huddersfield area, England and will be making available on these pages some of the resources and bits of historical interest as I come across them.

The History and Topography of South Crosland, Armitage Bridge and Netherton

Written by Philip Ahier and published in 1938. This facinating volume attempts to compress the history of the area into 134 pages. Now out of print and rare I am making this available for download as a text-searchable PDF.

Packed with names of places and people this will be of interest to local people and those researching their ancestry to get an insight into the area and possibly some sippet refering to the activities of their ancestors.
