Coordinates: 53°41′53″N 1°43′30″W / 53.698°N 1.725°W / 53.698; -1.725 Hartshead is a village in Kirklees, West Yorkshire, England, west of Dewsbury and near Hartshead Moor.

The village has pre-Norman Conquest origins; the Walton Cross dated from the 8th century.

The Revd. Patrick Brontë met his wife Maria Branwell (they met in Rawdon, some dozen or so miles away from Hartshead)[1] in 1811 whilst he was parson of St Peter's Church. They were married in Guiseley and became the parents of Anne Brontë, Charlotte Brontë and Emily Brontë.

Kirklees Hall is located between Hartshead and the nearby village of Clifton.

Robin Hood is reputed to have been buried near Hartshead, although the exact place is not known, as the gravestone has been moved at least 3 times.

The author James Dawson, Jr. (1840-1906), came from Hartshead. He moved to Manchester in pursuit of a literary career and then spent some time in London as a journalist before returning to his home village. His work includes Facts and Fancies from the Farm (1868).[2]
