Hebden Bridge is nestled in the centre of the Yorkshire Pennines and is at the confluence of the Calder and Hebden Rivers.
The fast running waters and growth of local transportation links by road, canal, and rail gave birth to a bustling textile town. This industry declined after the 2nd world war and presented an opportunity for Hebden Bridge to reinvent itself whilst retaining its heritage as a truly Yorkshire community, but with the benefit of the architecture and infrastructure that this booming era bought to the town.
Today Hebden Bridge has many attractions, from the abundance of coffee and tea shops to the many unique clothing, thrift, specialty and antique shops and many busy pubs and restaurants. Two private butchers, two private grocery shops, 3 bakeries, and art galleries plus many other privately operated business establishments catering to every taste.
