All About Skelmanthorpe

Skelmanthorpe is a village in the Denby Dale civil parish, in the metropolitan borough of Kirklees, in West Yorkshire, England. It is 8 miles (13 km) south-east of Huddersfield. According to the 2011 census, the village had a population of 4,549.

The village sits on the south (right) bank of the first river-like flow, from three small headwaters (uniting in the northwest corner of the parish), of the Dearne.

The village was recorded as Scelmertorp in the Domesday Book in the year 1086 AD. The name derives from the Norse personal name Skjaldmarr and thorp; thus having the meaning of an “outlying farmstead of a man called Skjaldmarr”.

Locals know it as “Shat”, which appears to be an abbreviation of “Shatterers”, the name by which the locals are known. Local labour was taken on during construction of the railway to break or ‘shatter’ rocks as well as work on the excavations. These unskilled labourers were referred to as Shatterers. The Doctor Who actress Jodie Whittaker has explained the origins of the term and referred to herself as a “Shat lass”.
