Lidget Street and Lindley Clock Tower, LindleyAcre Mills, LindleyHuddersfield Royal InfirmaryLindley Library, Lidget StreetSt Stephen's Church, LindleyLindley is a village district of Huddersfield about 2 miles north-east of the town centre.

It is noted for its distinctive clock tower, erected in 1902, and being the location of Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, which is in Acre Street.

The area is mostly residential and the area of housing has in recent years been controversially expanding on to the nearby Lindley Moor, where industrial units and a car showroom have also been built.

Lindley was already well-established as a large village before the Victorian era and was a major part of the township of Lindley-cum-Quarmby. Its parish church of St Stephen was built in 1829. The Victorian period saw further expansion of Lindley with the building of textile mills and associated works in the area.

A small part of the largest mill in the area, Acre Mills, has in recent years been converted to provide a new outpatients department for the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, just across the road. The hospital moved from its earlier building just outside Huddersfield Town Centre in the late 1960s and was officially opened in 1967 by the then Prime Minister Harold Wilson, who was born little more than a mile away in Cowlersley, Huddersfield.
