A historic village now has a completely new look.
A massive £1m revamp scheme of street improvements has now been completed within the centre of Almondbury.
The final stage brought improvements to land in front of a parade of shops at Northgate, creating a much more open, attractive and user-friendly setting for the shops and their customers.
A wide range of other works included:
Refurbishment of the war memorial.
Resurfacing in stone of pavements along Westgate and part of Northgate.
New Victorian-style street lights on Westgate.
New zebra crossings and parking lay-bys on Northgate.
Resurfacing of the roads on Northgate and Westgate.
New street furniture, including heritage style bollards and seats.
The council-funded works were part of a wider programme of improvements in Kirklees conservation areas.
They were developed in partnership with local businesses and residents.
Grants were also awarded to two local businesses to help them to improve the exterior of their buildings to conservation standard and to reinstate original features and materials.
Further improvements have been funded by the Huddersfield Area Committee, including work at the public car park at Westgate and the provision of new heritage-style street name plates for the village centre.
