I live in Huddersfield, well just moved out to Berry Brow over looking the Holme Valley with nice views of Castle Hill. About 3 miles walk from the main station. A minutes walk from Berry Brow station. :rolleyes:

I'm in Slaithwaite (Slawit). Got a station into Manchester from here in 35mins. Colne valley/Holme valley villages are nicer but prob a bit more pricey. Stay away from Fartown if you have to be in town centre.

There are some nice mill conversions around in Lindley/Oakes and Milnsbridge (though I was told to avoid Milnsbridge for some reason) though its only a short walk/cycle along the canal into town, or along the A62. Agree with the view on Fartown. A mile or two out of town is best. Huddersfield town centre is depressing IMO but gets nicer the further out you get. Huddersfield seems to have a good bus service, though I've never used it.

I once went to Slaithwaite station.

That's what calling into Wetherpoons for a couple of pints after work does for you. I was supposed to be catching a train in the opposite direction towards Leeds but got on the wrong one. I wasn't happy I had to wait what seemed ages for one back to Huddersfield.

Re where to live I would also avoid Fartown. Almondbury seemed OK when the brother-in-law lived there.

The more houses cost, the more hours you have to work to buy one. The more hours you work, the more taxes you have to pay the Governbankment. The more debt you take on, the more interest you have to pay bankers, so the more hours you work for them. 

 

If it is asserted that civilization is a real advance in the condition of man -- and I think that it is, though only the wise improve their advantages -- it must be shown that it has produced better dwellings without making them more costly; and the cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life which is required to be exchanged for it, immediately or in the long run.

Governbankment
A "Governbankment" is a Government that has no line between itself and banks. It diverts public money (our taxes) to private companies (banks). George Osborne's Help to Buy Bail Banks, will see our taxes go to bankers to cover their losses on mortgages that default. 

 

Democorruptcy
If you say "Democorruptcy" quickly, it sounds a bit like "Democracy". In a "Democracy" people vote for politicians who represent their interests. In the UK's "Democorruptcy" people can only vote for expense fiddling thieving MPs who are in the hip pocket of big business and the finance sector.

I used to put the bike on there, when the weather was too bad to cycle over Standedge pass (A62)

I lived in Milnsbridge for 4 years and only had one 'anti social' issue which was my car been broken in to and the radio nicked... I was on the Golcar side though but right in the centre... I think the Manchester Road side of the bridge was worse for drug issues.

Golcar/Slaithewaite or Lindley would be my choices if the commute to Bradford wasn't such a pig (colleague lives in Honley and its over an hour each way to BD1). I've heard Honley is ok too, and some nice scenery around there and Holmfirth.

(Re: Almondbury is ok but avoid 'Lower Houses')

I am based in Honley.

I would say that Marsden, Slaithwaite, Linthwaite, Honley, Berry Brow is OK in some areas, Brockholes and anywhere including and near Holmfirth really. I cannot speak for others areas of Huddersfield apart from The Colne Valley and Holme Valley though. It seems that crime, violence and illicit behaviour is rampant everwhere these days. Someone get robbed with a hammer at The Top of Chapel Hill the other day.

Also I was jumped in a toilet in a bar in town last year, a lad pretended to put a knife in back and demanded money whilst another lad pretending to wash his hands sneaked up and tried to stone cold knock me out. They didn't get anything from me fortunately as I move like a hawk ha ha ;-) . Depressing stuff I know.

I've been to Almondbury. Some very nice buildings there.
