Huddersfield Trolleybuses 1933-1968

Huddersfield Trolleybuses 1933-1968

Huddersfield started operating trolleybuses in Dec 1933 and with few exceptions did not expand from the tram network. It was one of the few systems that only ran 6-wheel trolleybuses. Graham Crawshaw will give a presentation which will cover the start of the system in 1933 until final closure on 13 July 1968. He grew up in Huddersfield and lived round the corner from the Moldgreen terminus.

1pm, at Winmarleigh House, 15 Winmarleigh Street, Warrington WA1 1NB. The venue is close to the town centre – 10 minutes walk from Bank Quay Station.
