Waterloo

Wakefield Road, WaterlooWaterloo from Round HillWaterloo is a district of Huddersfield about 2 miles east of the town centre.

The area is at the junction where Penistone Road branches from Wakefield Road. Wakefield Road crosses Fenay Beck via Waterloo Bridge, named after the famous battle of 1812, into the neighbouring district of Tandem.

The area is mostly residential but there are some small business premises in the area. For many years Waterloo has been the location of a bus garage in Penistone Road used over the years by Yorkshire Traction, the Huddersfield Bus Company, Yorkshire Tiger and now Team Pennine.

Originally part of the wider 'township' area of Dalton there was little but the bridge, the Waterloo Inn (now Tavern) and fields between the small hamlet of Greenside and the mills of Tandem until the 1900s.

A landmark between Waterloo and Dalton is Round Hill, a round hill surrounded by trees, the flat top of which was filled with housing in the mid-20th century.

Morrisons also have a supermarket accessed from Penny Lane, off Wakefield Road, Waterloo.
