All About Slaithwaite

Slaithwaite is in the heart of the Colne Valley, around 5 miles to the west-south-west of Huddersfield and 3 miles north-east of Marsden.

Situated on the River Colne and Huddersfield Narrow Canal, Slaithwaite was at one time a prosperous centre of the woollen textile industry and several mill buildings still dominate the village.

Although most often referred to as a village, Slaithwaite has since the industrial revolution had the proportions of a small town. Its original Town Hall, at Lewisham Road, dates back to 1892.

Slaithwaite was used as the TV location for the ITV series “Where The Heart Is” and was also used in scenes for long-running comedy series “Last Of The Summer Wine”, filmed principally around Holmfirth, around five miles to the south-east.

Over the past 30 years, Slaithwaite has held celebrations of a much older legend of the Moonrakers. The story is one of illegal liquor being hidden in the canal. The culprits were found by militia trying to fish it out with a rake and escaped arrest by saying they were raking out the moon, the reflection of which could be seen in the canal. The legend is celebrated with a lantern parade around the village during the Slaithwaite Moonraking Festival in February.

SlaithwaiteSlaithwaite village centre is at the bottom of a steep-sided valley, sandwiched between its main transport links – the trans-Pennine railway line and the A62 Manchester Road. The more historic transport link of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal runs through the middle of Slaithwaite, not far from the River Colne. Housing in the area is mainly terraced above the village, much of this being at Hill Top, perched above the railway line and its station.
