Rawthorpe

Coordinates: 53°39′25″N 1°45′25″W / 53.657°N 1.757°W / 53.657; -1.757 Rawthorpe is a district of Huddersfield situated at the top of Kilner bank, just east of Huddersfield town centre and close to the John Smith's Stadium. Consisting largely of a large council estate, the area also contains several notable buildings including Nether Hall (now a riding school.) Netherhall Learning Campus (formerly Rawthorpe High School) is situated on Nether Hall Avenue, as is the Creative & Media Studio School.

Rawthorpe Hall, a Grade II listed building, now converted into dwellings gives its apparent Norse place name to the vicinity. Historically, Rawthorpe lies in the ancient civil parish of Kirkheaton and the township of Dalton.
