Dewsbury is a town in Kirklees, West Yorkshire, east of Huddersfield and south of Leeds. It lies by the River Calder and the Calder and Hebble Navigation. Known as a booming 19th century mill town, Dewsbury experienced decline before entering a period of regeneration, with derelict mills transformed into flats. Some districts of Dewsbury, such as Batley Carr, Hanging Heaton and Staincliffe, also lie in Dewsbury's neighbouring town of Batley.
