Almondbury sits two miles south east of Huddersfield town centre. It appears in the Domesday Book as "Almondeberie". After the Norman Conquest, the land around the village was held by the powerful De Lacy family, who gave their name to De Lacy Avenue. Landmark Castle Hill is in Almondbury and the area is also home to Huddersfield's oldest school; King James' School, founded in 1547.
