Like many Yorkshire towns, Huddersfield was always traditionally known for its rows of town centre terraced homes.

The town's transport links also attract workers from Leeds and Manchester looking for better value in rental properties - as well as direct trains to Manchester that take just 29 minutes and services to Leeds in just 20 minutes.
