Lockwood sits around a mile to the south west of Huddersfield town centre and to the west of the River Holme. Historically, the area was called North Crosland but was renamed when taken over by the Lockwood family. Lockwood has a train station and also the 32-arched Grade II listed viaduct. It is also home to engineering firm David Brown's Park Works site.
