Todmorden is a small market town nestling in the heart of the Pennines at the meeting point of three narrow river valleys. The River Calder flows down the Burnley valley to meet Walsden Water, from the Rochdale valley, next to the market to continue their travels down the Halifax valley towards Hebden Bridge.
The town at the valley bottom was created by the industrial revolution. On the hillsides are much older small villages, hamlets, halls and farmhouses. For more information on Todmorden's history please click here.
