About Marsden

Marsden is a large village located seven miles west of the town centre of Huddersfield, sitting at the confluence between the River Colne and the Wessenden Brook. Marsden is surrounded on three sides by the high moors of Marsden and Meltham, with Saddleworth Moor being very close. Kirklees Council estimated in mid 2008 that the village had a population of 4,440. Marsden is also home the Marsden Silver Prize Band - a top level brass band - as well as the headquarters of the Holme Valley Mountain Rescue Team.
