Huddersfield is a large town in West Yorkshire, with a very long history. There are the remains of an Iron Age fort on Castle Hill, and the remains of a Roman fort were also discovered in the 19th century. Huddersfield is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Odersfelt. The castle on Castle Hill was built in the reign of King Stephen, around 1137 and in 1272 it was granted a market charter. This ensured its prosperity as did the wool trade.
When the mills began operating in the Industrial Revolution, many weavers lost their livelihood and Huddersfield was a place of unrest, with the Luddites attacking the new mills. As a result, troops were sent in to quell the unrest and at one time there were about a thousand troops in the town which had 10,000 residents. Eventually (in the 19th century) the British parliament began to provide welfare benefits for the unemployed. In those days accidents at work must have been commonplace as the mills were dangerous places to work in. in those days there were no personal injury compensation claims to make. Nobody needed access to legal help for accidents in Huddersfield back then.
