Plans to demolish historic Dalton Grange have sparked outrage.

The handsome, Gothic building situated on Bradley Mills Road, Rawthorpe and built in 1870 was used until recently as a social club by former employees of ICI, Zeneca and Syngenta. Now used as wedding and function venue.

Plans submitted to Kirklees Council suggest the demolition, not withstanding a bat survey, might be carried out as soon as mid July Although this could never be the case as they have bookings to honour upto the end of October.

But objector Peter Nixon said: “The building was a well-served wedding venue until recently and so holds a sentimental value to many residents of Huddersfield, not to mention the important historic worth of the building."

We are going to try and get the building spot listed, and press the council for a building preservation order, but this would probably need extensive local support.

We need all the local support we can get from the people of Huddersfield now before its too late. Once its gone its gone. Please sign this petition in order to help preventthis dreadful proposition.
