About Lindley

Lindley is a suburb of Huddersfield, situated approximately two miles north west of Huddersfield town centre. Lindley is the location of Huddersfield's main hospital, the Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, which was opened in 1967 after ten years of construction. The name Lindley is said to have come from the Saxon word, "Flax Meadow" and is believed to have been established by the Angles in the 600s as a farming community.
