Course Information

The Yorkshire Luddites and their Legacy

The term “Luddite” to describe machine-breaking was first coined in the Midlands in December 1811 and the movement erupted in West Yorkshire in January 1812. As the bicentenary approaches, we will explore many facets of this controversial and poignant movement, including its origins, character and its impact on Huddersfield - the Luddite epicentre in West Yorkshire.
