New Homes in Dewsbury

Welcome to Dewsbury

From high street shopping to country walks, museums and play parks, there’s lots to see and do near the town of Dewsbury. Located in West Yorkshire just a short drive away from Leeds and Bradford, a new home in Dewsbury is ideal if you want good commuter links, and plenty for the whole family to see and do in the local area.

A quick history

During the Anglo-Saxon era, Dewsbury was an important religious town. The Minster was built alongside the River Calder, and from the 15th century the bell was rung each Christmas Eve as part of the ‘Devil’s Knell’ tradition.

The town market dates back to the 14th century when local clothiers traded in the centre, and once the canal and railway were opened, the population of Dewsbury started to boom. During industrial times, Dewsbury was central to the Luddite movement when workers protested against the new machines used in factories. The textile industry eventually went into decline.

Business and industry

The head office of card makers UK Greetings is in Dewsbury, while other thriving businesses include mattress manufacturers AJ Foam and lighting company Martech, along with Magma Ceramics and Catalysts, and Pet Brands.

In Leeds nearby, major employers include Asda, Greggs, Jet2.com and Yorkshire Bank.

Things to do in the area

Dewsbury town centre is home to a regular market, along with the Princess of Wales Shopping Centre, Dewsbury Town Hall and Dewsbury Museum. If you’re moving to the area with children, they’ll enjoy playing at Crow Nest Park, exploring Yorkshire Sculpture Park, or spending an afternoon at Kirklees Light Railway.

Sports fans can go to Crown Flatt to watch Dewsbury RLFC play their home rugby matches, while Crow Nest Park is home to Dewsbury Rangers and Dewsbury Celtic. If you enjoy a round of golf on a weekend or summer’s evening, Dewsbury District Golf Club is nearby.

Other places of interest close to the town include Dewsbury Country Park and the National Coal Mining Museum, while neighbouring Leeds has a number of popular attractions including the Royal Armouries Museum, Trinity Leeds shopping centre and Thackray Medical Museum.

Travel and commuting

Located near the M1 and M62, Dewsbury has good transport link by road, along with regular rail services to Leeds, Manchester and beyond from the town’s train station.

By train, the journey to Leeds from Dewsbury takes just 15 minutes, while the car journey takes around 25 minutes depending on traffic. Manchester can be reached in 45 minutes by train or one hour by car, while Wakefield is only a 20-minute drive from the town, and Bradford is a 30-minute drive away.

If you’re going to London, the train takes around two hours 30 minutes with one change, while the drive takes three hours 45 minutes. When you’re ready to take a break from it all, Leeds Bradford Airport is only a 45-minute drive away from the town.
