In 1925 it was merged with Thurstonland urban district. Farnley Tyas and Thurstonland Urban District was then abolished in 1938 under a County Review Order, with the majority of the district merging into the Kirkburton urban district and the remainder into the Holmfirth urban district. Although within the Kirklees district of Huddersfield recent boundary changes will transfer the village from the Westminster Parliamentary district of Wakefield to Barnsley


The Honley Agricultural Show, which is held every June, has used farmland alongside Moor Lane as venues for recent shows.
