Stocksmoor Stocks Moor Road, Stocksmoor Cross Lane and Stocks Moor Road, Stocksmoor Stockmoor Village Hall Stocksmoor is a rural village 4 miles south-south-east of Huddersfield town centre (6 miles by road).

Although the railway arrived in Stocksmoor in 1850, when it became a stop on the then-new Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway line between Huddersfield and Penistone, Stocksmoor continued to be a small community of farms, sandstone quarries and the Clothiers' Arms Inn until well into the 20th century.

It was only towards the end of the 1900s that dozens of new houses were added to the area to create the village that exists today. The Clothiers' Arms continues to be a community focus, conveniently situated next to the station and terminus bus stop and across the road from the Village Hall.

Stocksmoor has HD4 6** postcode addresses for which Huddersfield is the postal town. Unless you place total dependance on a full correct postcode, a line with the Stocksmoor village name on is still an essential part of the address as there are duplicate street names within the postal area, eg. there is also a Cross Lane at Primrose Hill, a 5.2-mile drive away at the other side of Castle Hill, which also has a HD4 6** postcode.
