Huddersfield is a chiefly industrial area, famous over the years for the production and manufacture of electric motors, textiles, sheet metal, wool and chemicals. It was the scene of considerable unrest during the Industrial Revolution when Luddites, fearing the loss of their jobs as a result of ever increasing mechanisation, wrecked machines and mills and even went as far as murdering textile mill owners, notably one William Horsfall. In spite of the predominance or manufacturing the largest employer in the town nowadays is the University.
