Dewsbury

A historic market town, 19th century manufacturing centre of the Yorkshire Heavy Woollen District distributing woollen textiles to all corners of the British Empire, first recycling centre in the world where 'mungo' and 'shoddy' cloths were developed, home to Dewsbury Minster, mother church of much of Yorkshire since the 13th century, and the Dewsbury Rams Rugby League team since 1898.

The future. Rediscovering itself as the primary town of the North Kirklees Growth Zone. Home to two new college buildings in the Dewsbury Learning Quarter of Kirklees College and new development opportunities as a part of the Northern Powerhouse.
