Milnsbridge is around two miles west of Huddersfield town centre. The name is said to have derived from the water-powered mill and the bridge that stood alongside it in the 13th century. Sited in the Colne Valley, the Huddersfield Narrow Canal runs through Milnsbridge close to the River Colne. The area has a rich textile heritage and former Prime Minister Harold Wilson went to primary school at the then New Street School.
