Birstall is a large village in the metropolitan borough of Kirklees, and is also part of Batley, West Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is situated approximately 6mi south-west of Leeds. The village is centrally situated between Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield and Wakefield, and is close to the M62 motorway,HistoryBirstall is not listed in the Domesday Book but is alluded to as one of two main settlements within Gomersal, and was listed in Pigot's National Commercial Directory for 1828-29 as one of the four villages which make up the township of Gomersal.Birstall's name means either "the fortified place" or "the place where the fort is". It is popularly thought that the original location of the Burgh-Stall (Burgh meaning a fortification and Stall meaning place) is where the St Peter's Church is located. However it is more probable that the church was built at the bottom of an ancient hill fort site. The church site was, in fact, built above a sharp bend on the Birstall Beck, below Gomersall, pre-Conquest known as Guthmers Halh or (a nook or corner of land). This area is also thought to be an Anglo-Saxon burial ground.
