The Huddersfield Mechanics Institution

‌THE roots of the University of Huddersfield can be traced to an institution founded 175 years ago. A leading educationalist of the period described it as “a model for Yorkshire and England”. This was the Huddersfield Mechanics’ Institution, and its origins, its progress and its place in Victorian educational culture were described at the opening lecture of a special series.
