Netherthong is a small village near the town of Holmfirth. It lies in the Holme Valley in the metropolitan borough of Kirklees in West Yorkshire, England. The village is on the B6107 road to Meltham from the main A6024 Woodhead Road through the Holme Valley from Honley to Holmfirth. It has a population of 1,730.
The former Wesleyan chapel in the village was the first in the Huddersfield area. The Chapel (now a private dwelling on the St Mary's Estate) was opened in 1771. In 1772, John Wesley himself preached there, despite his well-known feelings on the people of the Huddersfield area. (In 1757, Wesley wrote "I rode over the mountains to Huddersfield. A wilder people I never saw in England. The men, women and children filled the streets and seemed just ready to devour us.".)
There are two pubs in the village, The Clothiers and The Cricketers in nearby Deanhouse, a post office and a small village shop / Newsagents owned by W and V Halstead. It is part of the Londis Group.
