The most beautiful of back water villages you could ever imagine and home to one of Huddersfield’s many natural spring water systems.
Ancient craftsmen settled here as Huddersfield has a natural union of landscape, geology and climate that is totally unique worldwide. These distinctive conditions create an ideal micro climate that is vital in creation of luxury cloth.
Our waters are created high up in the Pennine hills, where prevailing southwest winds off the Atlantic carry moisture-laden clouds onto the our hillsides.
The resulting 50-plus inches of annual rainfall saturates the surrounding landscape, permeating through the geological fundamentals of local gritstone and shale.
By the time our water reaches the valley floor it has been filtered and softened through layer upon layer of stone, creating pure, clean, consistent, soft water. In juxtaposition our valley’s combination of cool climate and high relative humidity, is a fabric finisher’s dream.
