Welcome to the Heavy Woollen Branch of CAMRA - The Campaign for Real Ale

The Branch covers the Northern part of the Kirklees area of West Yorkshire, including the main towns Dewsbury and Mirfield.
The area is so called due to the traditional manufacture of heavyweight cloth for blankets and clothing made partly from recycled wool.

The map below is a quick guide to all of our pubs, including 100 real ale pubs, some notable or recently closed plus a selection of local clubs.
For a comprehensive guide to our real ale outlets, please see Pub and Club Guides
