Service is given at historic castle

Huddersfield, England — A historic site on which stands a castle was the scene of a service project by members of the Huddersfield 2nd Ward, Huddersfield England Stake. Ward members cleared litter from the site.

The mayor of Huddersfield and the surrounding district of Kirklees, Ann Denham, attended and took part in the recent cleanup.

Castle Hill can count its history in millennia. During excavations, artifacts dating from 2100 B.C. were unearthed and identified as part of the earliest fortifications. Other evidences of occupation date back to Iron Age times.

The hill is one of a chain of beacon hills for signaling throughout the land, being 901 feet above sea level. The earliest recorded use was the warning of the arrival of the Spanish Armada in 1588. The castle's distinctive tower was built to commemorate the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria in 1897, and is known as Victoria Tower.
