Marsden is a large village about 8 miles from Huddersfield on the West Yorkshire side of Standedge crossing of the Pennines into Greater Manchester.

Marsden mapMarsden is situated on the A62 road from Huddersfield to Oldham which, prior to the building of the M62, was a major route from Leeds to Manchester. Historically several tracks and roads have crossed the moors from Marsden and there is still evidence of them today. Two packhorse bridges, Mellor Bridge by the church and Close Gate Bridge at the edge of the moor to the east of the village, are still in use.

Marsden Moor Estate, which surrounds Marsden on three sides, is in the care of the National Trust and is an area of beautiful scenery ideal with many opportunities for walking.

Both the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and the Huddersfield to Manchester railway pass through Marsden, entering the parallel rail and canal Standedge Tunnels about half a mile to the west of the town. Marsden station is located in the village on the railway line.
