The Club has been in existence since it's foundation stone was laid on 9th August 1887. Lindley Liberal Club is situated in the centre of the village adjacent to the famous Lindley Clock Tower. We are approximately two miles northwest of Huddersfield Town Centre, easily accessible by a regular bus service and enjoying a membership of approximately 2000 members.
A study of the legal deeds of Lindley Liberal Club gives an insight into how the club has developed from small beginnings into the large and successful club of today. The first entry we find was on July 21st, 1887, when land known as "The Acres" comprising of about 780sq. yards and owned by Mr. Thomas Hey, a local grocer, was sold to Lindley Liberal Building Company Ltd for £195. The land purchased at that time did not include the present bowling green nor the spare land nearby. The stalwarts, who signed for and on behalf of Lindley Liberal Building Company Ltd on that historic day, were chairman Frederick William Sykes, Secretary Henry Kilner, and trustees Mr. Arthur Walker and Mr. Joel Crosland. Building commenced at once and the foundation stone laid the following month on August 9th, 1887. The club came into use the following year.
In 1891 the club was registered with the friendly societies as Lindley Liberal Working Men's Club.
We move on to December 28th, 1910 when Lindley Liberal Building Company Ltd sold the building and land to Lindley Liberal Club for the princely sum of £500. The building was subject to "Trust" clauses.

This is at the rear of the club. It has a separate building where members can store their bowling equipment if required or just sit and have a chat. There is also a pleasant seating area around the perimeter of the bowling green.
In 1911 a piece of land behind the club came on to the market, Mr. F. W. Sykes of Green Lea Lindley purchased this land and presented it to the club for a "peppercorn" lease on the opening of the bowling Green in May 1912. The "peppercorn" rent had to be paid on Christmas day of each year and within the agreement it also stipulated that the club were not allowed to build on the land. The addition of a bowling green came at an opportune time, for the club was beginning to face opposition from two other working men's clubs which had been established in the village, one of which had its own bowling green.
