Scissett

Scissett is a village in West Yorkshire, England. It is 14 km (8 mi) south east of Huddersfield and 16 km (10 mi) north west of Barnsley.

The river that runs though the village is called the River Dearne

Scissett grew up around the woollen industry in the 19th century as mill owners built houses in the area for the workers of the local mills. The nearby coalfields also provided employment. These industries are now gone and some of the mills are now retail units.

The Scissett Baths (and leisure centre) is one of the main attractions for the surrounding area. Scissett also has First and Middle schools to provide education for children from 4 – 13.
