Fulstone was a village that was made an urban district in 1894 (the year that urban districts were first formed). It was very short-lived and was absorbed by the neighbouring New Mill Urban District in 1895.

New Mill urban district was abolished in 1938 by a County Review Order which saw the district and parishes merged into the urban district and parish of Holmfirth, which has been since included in Kirklees, West Yorkshire and renamed Holme Valley.
