From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linthwaite (known as Linfit in the local community)[1] is a village in Kirklees, West Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is situated 4 miles (6 km) west of Huddersfield, on the A62 in the Colne Valley. The village together with Blackmoorfoot had a population of 3,835 according to the 2001 census.

The River Colne, Huddersfield Narrow Canal, the Huddersfield to Manchester railway line and A62 main road all pass near to the village. After they were constructed, textile mills were then built to produce cloth making use of the river. This led to the growth of the village. Linthwaite Hall on Linfit Fold was built around 1600.

Currently, it is a busy village with five pubs, including the Sair Inn, a traditional pub, formerly known as the 'New Inn' and now one of the few 'own brew' pubs still in the country. It won the CAMRA National Pub of the Year Award in 1997.

Linthwaite is believed to be where the surnam Dyson started in 1316.[2]

Blackmoorfoot Reservoir, at the top of Gilroyd Lane, is a wintering site for migrating wildfowl and wading birds.
