This town stands on the small river
Colne, and though situated on a barren
soil, is highly rich and populous, from
the advantages afforded by its coal and
waterfalls to the woollen manufacture,
of which it is one of the great marts.
Here is a spacious cloth hall, erected
by Sir John Ramsden, in 1765, in
which, on market days, an incredible
deal of business is transacted. Hud-
dersfield affords small matter of anti-
quarian research; the church of St.
Peter is an ancient plain building, but
Trinity church, erected at Green Head,
at the sole expense of B. Haigh Allen,
Esq., in 1817, is an elegant structure
in the Gothic style. With the exception
of two or three houses, Sir John Rams-
den, Bart, is the sole proprietor of the
town of Huddersfield, which affords him
a princely income; the Ramsden canal,
is a cut about three miles long from the
Huddersfield canal, to the river Calder,
and thus affords to the town a facility of
inland navigation, both with the eastern
and western parts of the kingdom.
In the township, are Birkby, the seat
of J. Holroyd, Esq.; Fartown, the seat
of B. Shires, Esq.; Greenhead, the seat
ofB. Haigh Allen, Esq.; Spring Wood,

waite. Entire population, 24,220.
