High Flatts


 Map view 

High Flatts is a country hamlet 7 miles south-south-east of Huddersfield town centre (10 miles by road) in the direction of Penistone.

It is the location of an iron age hill fort of which there are few earthwork remains, but flint arrow heads and tools and stone axe head fragments found at the site are kept at Tolson Museum.

The area has a few groups of stone cottages and some scattered houses and farm buildings, but is particularly noted for its historic Quaker Meeting House at Firth Lane, Quaker Bottom.

Meetings were established in a barn there around 1652 when the Society of Friends was just emerging. The building was converted into a purpose-built meeting house in 1697 and rebuilt in 1754. The Meeting House, which is Grade II listed, is a building featured in the England-wide Heritage Open Days festival being held between September 8 and 11, 2016.
