Longroyd Bridge


 Map view 

Longroyd Bridge is a district of Huddersfield just under a mile west south west of the town centre up the Colne Valley.

The small district grew around an important crossing point of the River Colne. Manchester Road also crosses the Huddersfield Narrow canal here.

Paddock Viaduct, carrying the Huddersfield-Penistone-Sheffield line, and the tall spire of St Thomas's Church are dominant features of the area.

Longroyd Bridge was once the location of the town's tramway and later bus depot, although the building has since been reused.
