General Notes on Rastrick

Rastrick is a district of Calderdale to the south of Brighouse and neighbouring on Elland and Huddersfield. Until the coming of the turnpikes and the canals, the town was originally more important than Brighouse which lay in the swampy valley bottom. There was much quarrying in the area in the 19th century.

The name appears in Domesday Book as Rastric, and is variously spelled as Rashryke, Rasterick and means a halting place, a resting place, or a place where horses can be rested.

Watson suggest that the name is of Old English origin and means a sleeping hill, a raised ridge with a resting place for travellers, or a place of accommodation for travellers.

In 1284, an inquest reported that the village of Rastrick was rated at 13/- and at that time contained only 6 freemen. The rest were, according to the inquest

native tenantes, villans or bondsmen

The surname Rastrick originated here.

There was a maypole here until the mid-19th century.

Rastrick became a part of the new Borough of Brighouse in 1893.
