About Birkby

Birkby is a large suburb lying close to the town centre of Huddersfield. Having a population of roughly 6,700, the name Birkby is believed to mean "a village inhabited by people of both Viking and ancient Briton origins". Birkby contains Norman Park, a small park with a war memorial commemorating those who died in the First World War. Birkby remained largely rural well into the 20th century, with the original settlement lying close to the town centre.
