Cleckheaton sits in the borough of Kirklees, in the historic region of Yorkshire's West Riding. The town stands at the centre of The Spen Valley: an area which grew prosperous in the 19th century, through an abundance of Victorian industry. Today the Spen Valley is far more sedate, and the old lines of the freight railways have been replaced by the scenic cycling routes of the Spen Valley Greenway.
Cleckheaton's own former industrial wealth can still be seen in its grand churches and elegant civic halls, and the town still remains a bustling profusion of handsome stone-fronted Victorian buildings. Cleckheaton has a friendly and welcoming community feel, and the town is well-served by a host of amenities and services, including doctors; pharmacies and high street banks - not to mention a fantastic selection of shops; supermarkets; and specialist local businesses - all within easy reach.
Sporting enthusiasts will find a friendly welcome at the Cleckheaton & District Golf Club and the town also has a sports club and two bowling greens. Cleckheaton has a varied and highly-recommended selection of pubs and restaurants, along with plenty of cafes, coffee shops and takeaways.
On the first Saturday of every month, Cleckheaton holds a popular Farmers' Market, offering a mouth-watering array of delicious seasonal produce. There's also the annual Cleckheaton Folk Festival, providing live music, street entertainment and craft events. Cleckheaton is served by a modern bus station and is well situated for motorway access. The cities of Leeds, Bradford and the large town of Halifax are all within a 22 minute drive away.
