Dalton is a district of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire in England. It is situated approximately one mile east of the town centre between Moldgreen and Kirkheaton.

Located in a small valley it is mostly housing, with a small number of engineering firms to the northwest, surrounded by farmland used in the production of milk.

Germaine Lindsay, one of the suicide bombers involved in the 7 July 2005 London bombings, had lived in the area following his arrival from Jamaica aged five.[1]

History

Dalton was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. This tax-motivated survey commissioned by William the Conqueror listed landholdings and resources. However, unlike other areas surrounding Huddersfield, Dalton was not listed as `waste', meaning uncultivated or unusable land, and there was economic activity. A plough was being used and the land was worth ten shillings.[2]
