This chapter discusses the adoption of the Local Government Act of 1858 by suburbs of Huddersfield. Moldgreen was the first locality in the Huddersfield area to adopt the Local Government Act. It was followed within the next few years by a rush of others. The first group consists of four townships named in the Huddersfield Act of 1848 which lived under the immediate threat of being brought within the jurisdiction of the Improvement Commissioners: Marsh, Fartown, Deighton, and Bradley. The second group includes places lying just a little way further outside the town, which were also incorporated with it in 1868, and the third includes more remote towns and villages which were in no danger of being absorbed by Huddersfield in the 19th century.

Keywords:   Local Government Act, Huddersfield, Huddersfield Act, Marsh, Fartown, Deighton, Bradley
