I was brought up in Meltham. If I arrived at Huddersfield station after the last Hanson’s bus (11pm from the bus station) I would hurry out of the station across St George’s Square to catch the trolley bus to Crosland Moor – last bus 11.55pm, then walk the rest. The line up of trolley buses at 11.55 was an impressive memory.

Although I liked the floral display in the Square, and the parked trolley buses between duties in the circle made for them, I think that its redesign to a more open pedestrian area was an improvement. I look forward to the newly restored buildings around this area.
