  About your Area
 

Linthwaite (also pronounced Linfit by locals) is a village in West Yorkshire, England. It is situated 4 miles (6 km) west of Huddersfield, on the A62 in the Colne Valley. The village together with Blackmoorfoot had a population of 3,835 according to the 2001 census.

The River Colne, Huddersfield Narrow Canal, the Huddersfield to Manchester rail line and A62 main road all pass near to the village. After they were constructed, textile mills were then built to produce cloth making use of the river. This led to the growth of the village. Linthwaite Hall on Linfit Fold was built around 1600.

Currently, it is a busy village with five pubs, including The Sair Inn. This olde style pub was formerly known as the 'NEW INN' It is now one of the very 'own brew' pubs still in the country, having around eight home brewed beers available, from the lowest Mild at 3% to the strongest Leadboiler of 6.6% at the Linfit brewery. The Sair won the CAMRA National Pub of the Year Award in 1997.

There are also two primary schools and a secondary in the village: Linthwaite Ardron Memorial Junior School and the Linthwaite Clough Junior Infant and Early Years School for local children; and Colne Valley High School, whose catchment area is described in the name.

Blackmoorfoot Reservoir, at the top of Gilroyd Lane, is a wintering site for migrating wildfowl and wading birds.

Linthwaite hit the national news in late 2005 when a local young thug inserted lit fireworks into a dog. He was found guilty of the crime and sentenced to community service, the lenient punishment causing outrage amongst locals.

Linthwaite is believed to be the place where the "Dyson" surname was founded in 1316.

[edit] Sport

In sport the village has two teams in the Huddersfield District Cricket League: Broad Oak (on the top road) and Linthwaite (in the valley).

Linthwaite also has a string of football teams playing in the RCD Junior Football League from under 8's right up to under 18's they also have a tots soccer group of 5 to 7 year olds. They achieved the FA Charter Standard award in 2004.
