Storthes Hall

Storthes Hall

Storthes Hall is a part of Kirkburton. A heavily wooded area, it comprises a single road, Storthes Hall Lane, which links Kirkburton with the nearby villages of Farnley Tyas and Thurstonland.

To the immediate north is North Spring Wood. Boothroyd Wood occupies the area to the south whilst Myers Wood can be found to the east. Myers Wood is the site of a medieval iron working site.

A psychiatric hospital operated at Storthes Hall from 1904-1991. It was founded as an asylum and was previously called the Storthes Hall Mental Hospital (1929-1938), the West Riding Mental Hospital (1939-1948)and Storthes Hall Hospital (1949-1991). A former mill owners house, Storthes Hall Mansion, can be found further down the road heading towards the village centre. This too was a psychiatric hospital, the Mansion Hospital, and operated separately to the one further up the road. It too closed in 1991. It is now a private residence.

The area has some private housing, however the University of Huddersfield supplies most of the occupants due to the campus that occupies part of the site of of the former psychiatric hospital, the Storthes Hall Park Student Village. The site also provides training facilities to Huddersfield Town.
