We photograph players and/or their descendants as they receive their Heritage Number Certificate. View them HERE.

After many years of stagnation, new 'old' photo albums are now being added on a regular basis. Check them out HERE.


The bulk of the site is taken up with an archive of written, oral, and visual material.

Each category contains information about players, the club in its various guises [HC&AC, Fartown, & Giants], the teams which have represented us, amateur clubs in and around the town, what Huddersfield was like in World War 1, and what went on in the action at the front.

In the boxes below, clicking on either the picture or the text will take you to the appropriate section.

Written Archive

The written material in the archive consists of programmes, year books, testimonial brochures, people's memories, plus lots more.

Oral Interviews

Teams of people interviewed supporters and players alike.

Visual Archive

Visually there are both photographs and videos.

Educational Resources

In addition to all this aged material, we are producing educational packages which will help schools follow the National Curriculum with real life examples.

Heritage Trails

We have some Heritage Trails; around the town centre, within the George Hotel, and around Wagstaff's Holmfirth.

The Heritage Project

You might want to know more about the project itself and how we have organised ourselves. There's a whole host of background material, including PowerPoint prsentations which are of particular interest to teachers.

Background To Archiving

We've had to learn a lot about the archiving process. We are freely letting you share this knowledge.
