The History of Huddersfield… (1898 & 1906) by D.F.E. Sykes



Downloadable PDF versions of the following two works by D.F.E. Sykes:

  • The History of Huddersfield and its Vicinity (1898)
  • The History of Huddersfield and the Valleys of the Colne, the Holme and the Dearne (1906)

Please note that both books can also be read online for free. However, if you would like to show your support for the Huddersfield Exposed web site and enable us to continue digitising historic material, all of the income will be used to help secure more items. Whenever possible, the items will then be donated to one of the local public archives so that they are preserved for future generations.

The two PDFs contain a combined total of 1,016 pages.


The Huddersfield Exposed web site asserts no copyright over this digitised version of the book. Once you have purchased and downloaded the PDF, you are free to do anything you want with it. However, we would respectfully request that if you make the PDF available elsewhere, please do not remove or alter the cover sheet and/or PDF metadata properties.

The author, Daniel Frederick Edward Sykes, died on 4 June 1920 and his works entered the Public Domain on 1 January 1971.
