Birdsedge is a small rural village, coupled with the adjacent hamlet of High Flatts. The villages are set high on the edge of the Yorkshire Pennines, almost a thousand feet above sea level, in England's rugged north. There are 150 or so houses, about 350 people, a school (and out of school club), a village hall, a Wesleyan Reform Church, a Friends Meeting House, a mill (Hinchliffe's) which is a small part of a bigger complex in nearby Denby Dale, and some local businesses.

There's an active village hall offering varied events from quiz night socials to concerts, and an annual community festival. Birdsedge even has its own newsletter, Village Voice, produced six times a year. Contact the editor Roz Mears for details 01484 604289.

Birdsedge and High Flatts are on the southern edge of Kirklees local authority (Huddersfield). The nearest towns are Huddersfield and Barnsley and the nearest cities are Wakefield, Leeds, Sheffield and (just over the Pennines) Manchester. It is in the Dewsbury Parliamentary constituency and the MP is Paula Sherriff (Labour)
