0036 The Swan Inn is Meltham's oldest surviving inn, established by the Garlick family as early as the 1730s. The family were local butchers and the earliest recorded name — the Shoulder of Mutton — reflected their profession. The name was changed to the Swan Inn between 1803 and 1817 by John Garlick, possibly to avoid confusion with the Shoulder of Mutton Inn was situated on the proposed Lockwood and Meltham Turnpike Road (now Huddersfield Road) at Lockwood.

The Isle of Skye Hotel. Meltham, Huddersfield. The Isle of Skye Hotel, also known as the Wessenden Head Inn, is shown on the 1854 6" O.S. map. The pub stood opposite the point where the Meltham and Wessenden Head Turnpike joined the Greenfield to Shepley road, and this junction is a likely reason for its construction. The road from Meltham opened in 1835, and the style of the building would seem apt for any time after that date.
