About Golcar

Golcar (pronounced "Goker" or "Golker") is a village located on a hillside crest above the Colne Valley. Sitting two-and-a-half miles west of Huddersfield, Golcar is just north of the River Colne and the Huddersfield Narrow Canal. A relatively small village, Golcar is named after St Guthlac, who preached in the area in the 8th century. Eventually becoming an important centre for weaving during the Industrial Revolution, Golcar is also the place internationally renowned pharmacologist James Burrows grew up.
