Salendine Nook

Salendine Nook lies two miles from Huddersfield town centre. Although not in the Doomsday Book, the area appears in history in the 16th century. It is believed the area gets its name from the greater celandine, part of the poppy family. “Nook” means secluded place or corner. So Salendine Nook could have been a secluded place where the celandines grew. Today Salendine Nook is home to Huddersfield New College, Salendine Nook High School and Huddersfield's YMCA at Laund Hill.
