Helme is a hamlet with a school and church about 4 miles south west of Huddersfield town centre (5 miles by road) and about 1 mile north of Meltham.

The area is an agricultural community with 18th and 19th century stone weavers cottages. The school and attractive church were Victorian additions, the latter built by the Brook family in 1859 in memory of Charles John Brook, of Thick Hollins.

Nearby is Helme Hall, a manor house developed in the late 19th century for a mill owner, which is now a nursing home.
