Dewsbury, in West Yorkshire, although situated close to Wakefield, Huddersfield and Leeds, is by no means shadowed by its surrounding areas. After major growth during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, when the area transformed into a mill town, such industry began to decline in the following centuries. That said, old mills have since been converted into flats and the community spirit of Dewsbury lives strong. The area is particularly prominent in the 'Heavy Woollen District' and also has a fantastic museum, which can be found in the Crows Nest Park Mansion House. As a thriving town, full of hidden curiosities, the history of many areas around the community will be revealed in full colour to show how the town has transformed over the years in Dewsbury Through Time.
