Huddersfield is a large market town in the Metropolitan Borough of Kirklees in West Yorkshire, England. Huddersfield was a prominent mill town in the industrial revolution.
To the town's west are the Pennines, south is the River Holme's discharge into the similar-sized Colne.
The town's historic county is the West Riding of Yorkshire.
His 1965 oil painting of Chapel Hill, as seen from what is now the ring road, shows children playing while towering mills smoke away in the background.
On the horizon, the outline of iconic and now partially demolished Newsome Mills can be seen.

The rivers around the town provided the volumes of soft water required for textile treatment in the large weaving sheds which were associated with an economic boom in the early part of the Industrial Revolution.
The town has much neoclassical Victorian architecture centrally, among which its railway station which is in the rarest category of statutory recognition and protection (a Grade I listed building),
described by John Betjeman as 'the most splendid station facade in England',
second only to St Pancras, London.
Fronting St George's Square, it was renovated for £4 million and accordingly won the Europa Nostra award for architecture.
