Under the Spen Valley Light Railways Order of 1901 British Electric Traction set up the Yorkshire (Woollen District) Electric Tramways.
The company established a tramway network centred on Dewsbury with branches to Cleckheaton, Birkenshaw, Ravensthorpe, Thornhill and Birstal.
Operations were replaced by the buses of British Electric Traction-owned Yorkshire Woollen District Transport Company.
Services ended on 31 October 1934.
