Jackson Bridge

 Map view 

Jackson Bridge is a hamlet 1.8 miles south south east of Huddersfield town centre (6 miles by road) and 1.8 miles east south east of Holmfirth (3 miles by road).

Jackson Bridge was a regular location in the BBC's longest-run comedy series Last of the Summer Wine, which was filmed around the Holmfirth area.

Dobroyd Mills is a large mill between Jackson Bridge and the neighbouring village of Hepworth. Its origins as a textile mill date back to 1829, but in recent years it has had new uses and has recently been the subject of major redevelopment proposals including new housing.

When New Mill had its own Urban District Council between 1895 and 1938, before it merged into the Holmfirth urban district, the council had offices at Jackson Bridge.
