Heritage

Spen Valley has a rich heritage. Our historic buildings (most made of Yorkshire stone) include fine 16th and 17th century houses built by woollen clothmakers; ancient churches and 19th century nonconformist chapels; victorian mills, millowners' mansions and schools. Our history features farmers, weavers, Quakers, Chartists, Luddites, Brontes and pioneering industries, notably textiles, card-clothing, wire-drawing and precision engineering.
