Castle Hill (Huddersfield)



Debate on future of Castle Hill

People in Huddersfield are being asked whether a pub should remain on Castle Hill - there has been one for nearly two centuries, but a recent unapproved addition to the building there led to it being demolished.

Kirklees Council deputy leader Clr John Smithson said: "I promised back in November 2004 that there would be public consultation once the structure was demolished. I am very pleased that this will now include a comprehensive conservation plan as required by the Heritage Lottery Fund."

English Heritage will be involved as the land is a nationally-important archaeological site and a Scheduled Ancient Monument. Issues under review will include: access, car parking, visitor facilities, use of Victoria Tower, the condition and erosion of the earthworks.
