Wellhouse



 Map view 

Wellhouse is a small residential village on the northern hillside of the Colne Valley between Golcar and Slaithwaite and about 4 miles west south west of Huddersfield town centre.

The village was an early to mid-19th century hillside weaving settlement and as been designated a conservation area since 1981 due its special architectural and historical interest. It is mostly made up of 18th and 19th century weaver's cottages and late 19th century houses.

Wellhouse Junior and Infant School is the main focal point of the small local community. The school was originally the Wellhouse United Methodist School, built in 1881.

Wellhouse Methodist New Connexion Church, formally opened in Upper Wellhouse Road in 1845 would previously have been the village focal point, but this building was demolished in 1966. The chapel continued to use the Sunday School building until closing around 1995.

Random point in time survey (Wellhouse: Fri Jan 22, 2016, 10.56). Times may considerably vary according to traffic, particularly at peak commuter hours, and trans-Pennine weather conditions. PLEASE ALWAYS CHECK CURRENT TRAFFIC CONDITIONS. See different results in eg. Almondbury, Bradley, Denby Dale, Honley, Holme, Holmfirth, Kirkburton, Marsden, Meltham, New Mill, Slaithwaite. Note: ~ While A&E exists at Dewsbury and District Hospital it is planned to be downgraded starting autumn 2016 to spring 2017 such that if you attend the A&E department at Dewsbury but you need to be admitted for specialist treatment then you will be transferred to Pinderfields. Live timing data for Dewsbury was not obtained on this occasion and its position in this chart is therefore estimated.
