Newsome is a village around one mile south of Huddersfield town centre. The village lies at the centre of Kirklees Council's Newsome electoral ward to which it gives its name. Newsome stands on below Castle Hill and above the valley where the River Holme meets the River Colne. The Newsome Mills building's clocktower is the area's landmark building and can be seen from much of Huddersfield.
