Armitage Bridge is a village approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) south of Huddersfield, in the Holme Valley, West Yorkshire, England. It is situated between Berry Brow and South Crosland and straddles the River Holme. The village has a public house, a cricket club and a renowned ukulele shop.
The village is dominated by the large former woollen mill of John Brooke and Sons, reputedly the oldest family business in the country, having been founded in 1541. The mill has now been converted into the Yorkshire Technology and Office Park.
The local church is St Paul's and it was built in 1848, with a donation from the Brooke family. Partially destroyed in 1987, by fire, and rebuilt the same year. The church's current clergy are the Rev Stephen Gott and Rev Stephanie Buchanen.
