Blackmoorfoot

 Map 
Blackmoorfoot Road, Blackmoorfoot Blackmoorfoot Reservoir Blackmoorfoot is a hamlet 4 miles south-west of Huddersfield town centre, near the top of the moor above the Colne Valley.

Blackmoorfoot consists of a small group of houses and a pub on the old moorland route between Huddersfield and Marsden at a point where roads branch off to Linthwaite and Meltham.

It is also the location where between 1871 and 1876 the former Huddersfield Corporation built the largest of its reservoirs with its two embankments. While it seems to have a strange hilltop location, the engineers of the day ensured that it was fed with water from moors for miles around while being high enough to serve homes and business in the valleys and the hillside villages.
