Oakes is a district of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England. It is situated 2 miles (3 km) to the west of the town centre off the A640 New Hey Road towards the M62 motorway, between Marsh, Lindley, Quarmby and Salendine Nook.
Oakes was a location of the textile industry. Wellington Mills was constructed together with the local Baptist church, a school, and a public house in 1864. The large factories have now closed and are used for other purposes. Oakes Mills has been demolished in 2017 to make room for a supermarket.
