The old townhall building in Jyderup for the former Tornved Municipality

Jyderup is split in two parts divided by the road between Holbæk and Kalundborg named Skovvejen (English: Forest Road).

The northeastern part is the oldest, containing the 13th-century church. The southwestern part was built when the railroad was constructed in the early 1900s, and contains most of the shops and stores in the town. In early 2008, the town library was also moved to this part, when the townhall building stood empty, after Tornved Municipality became part of Holbæk Municipality in 2007, and the local authority was moved out of the town for the sake of centralization.
