ZOOM PRESENTATION: Highfields
Online presentation by David Griffiths, Tuesday, February 9
Based on the recently published HCS book, David Griffiths will present the story behind the development of Highfields, Huddersfield’s first suburb. Looking back to its origins in 18th century Newhouse, David will trace its development from the early nineteenth century, when it became the favoured residential location for Huddersfield’s business and professional class. The story will continue by looking at the architectural showcase of New North Road where, amid a wealth of Victorian residences, significant educational and religious establishments, some by distinguished architects, were constructed.
