Fenay Bridge


 Map view 

Fenay Bridge is a small village around Fenay Beck 2.5 miles east south east of Huddersfield town centre (about 3 miles by road).

The area is now almost entirely residential, with much new development within the last 20 years. By road, the village appears divided into sections, accessed from either Penistone Road or Wakefield Road, but it is easy to navigate through all areas on foot.

For around 100 years from 1902, Fenay Bridge was the location of a large brickworks. There was also a Fenay Bridge and Lepton station at Station Road, Fenay Bridge, on the four-and-a-half mile branch line which linked Kirkburton and Huddersfield via a junction at Deighton. This closed to passengers in 1930 and this section of the line was closed to freight in 1965.

Fenay Bridge used to have a St Helen's Church, but this was amalgamated into a new church in Almondbury in the 1950s.
