History

The Archdeaconry was founded (from the Archdeaconry of Craven in the Diocese of Ripon, plus three parishes of the Archdeaconry of York) with the erection of the Diocese of Wakefield on 20 November 1888. [2] From then until its reorganisation in 1927, the archdeaconry of Huddersfield comprised all but the northwestern corner of that diocese. In 1927, the archdeaconry was renamed to that of Halifax and its borders moved to cover the western half of the diocese (the old Halifax archdeaconry became the archdeaconry of Pontefract). [3]

The (second) archdeaconry of Halifax has constituted the western half of the diocese since the 1927 reorganisation, covering the deaneries of Calder Valley, Halifax, Brighouse and Elland, Huddersfield, Almondbury and Kirkheaton. Since the creation of the Diocese of Leeds [4] on 20 April 2014, the archdeaconry forms the Huddersfield episcopal area. [5]
