Getting Here

Marsden is a thriving Pennine stone-built village set amongst stunning moorland scenery, near Huddersfield.

A frequent train service runs to Manchester, Leeds and beyond, and the M62 motorway is just far enough away not to be heard. The A62 Huddersfield to Manchester road runs through the village and for those who prefer a slower pace, so does the restored Huddersfield Narrow Canal.
