Aspley

Aspley BasinRiver Colne, AspleyHuddersfield Broad Canal, AspleyAspley is about half a mile or 10 minutes walk from Huddersfield town centre along the busy A629 Wakefield Road.

The area is to the south-east of the University of Huddersfield campus and includes several student accommodation blocks. There are also small pockets of housing, a travel hotel, a pub and a number of warehouse and industrial premises.

Aspley includes the canal basin serving Huddersfield at the meeting point of the Huddersfield Broad Canal and Huddersfield Narrow Canal. The River Colne also flows through the area, passing beneath Wakefield Road at Somerset Bridge.

Around Aspley

A newsagent and many specialist shops are mostly arranged along Wakefield Road and some have one-hour roadside parking outside.

The area has a Lidl and small Asda supermarket and an Iceland frozen food store.

The only remaining pub of several which used to be in the area is The Aspley. This is situated beside the canal basin, where there is also a travel hotel. These can be reached on foot over a bridge across the canal from a car park near to the Sainsbury's supermarket at Shore Head.

The area is served by many takeaways offering all types of cuisine.

St Joseph's Catholic Church is in Somerset Road and is part of the Immaculate Heart of Mary parish, Huddersfield.

It is also the starting point of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal which continues past the University towards Marsden before tunnelling beneath the Pennines to Diggle and continuing to Ashton-under-Lyne.

The A629 Wakefield Road crosses the River Colne at Aspley.
