Linthwaite is a village in Kirklees, West Yorkshire, England. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, it is situated 4 miles (6 km) west of Huddersfield, on the A62 in the Colne Valley. The village together with Blackmoorfoot had a population of 3,835 according to the 2001 census.

The River Colne, Huddersfield Narrow Canal, the Huddersfield to Manchester rail line and A62 main road all pass near to the village. After they were constructed, textile mills were then built to produce cloth making use of the river. This led to the growth of the village. Linthwaite Hall on Linfit Fold was built around 1600.
