History

  1. Colne Valley Museum is a small independent community museum run by volunteers, It is housed in a terrace of weavers cottages in the village of Golcar about 3 miles south west of Huddersfield. The terrace, known as 'Spring Rock' was built between 1840 and 1845 by James and Sally Pearson and is Grade 2 listed and in the local conservation area.

    The museum depicts the Cottage Textile Industry and Domestic Life in the Victorian period and has a collection policy from 1820 to 1920, an established education service, mounts new exhibitions every six weeks and has a reputation for innovation in the voluntary sector.
