    The August Bank Holiday weekend will see the start of the popular Hebden Bridge Camera Club Annual Exhibition and, this year, owing to Covid 19 and the impracticalities of arranging a physical exhibition at the Town Hall, it will take place on our website.

    The exhibition will start on Saturday 29 August and is a showcase for the work of all our members. There will be both digital and film images, displaying a wide variety of categories, styles and techniques. We are hoping that visitors to our website will have the opportunity to vote for their favourites, which has proved so popular in previous years. The three winning images from last year's exhibition will also be on display.

    The club usually meets at The Masonic Hall, Hangingroyd Lane, Hebden Bridge, every Wednesday evening at 7.45pm, from the beginning of September to the end of April. However, during Lockdown, the club has remained active by meeting online via Zoom.

    New members are always welcome. Please contact us through our website for details of a free trial membership. Each year the club produces its own Hebden Bridge Calendar and the 2021 version will be available to purchase locally.

    For more information, please visit our website.

    Calderdale Industrial Museum reopens on Saturday 29th May and Monday 31st May 2021 from 10am to 4pm. No booking is required and the last admission will be at 3pm.

    There will also be a pop-up display in the Musuem courtyard on both days; 'The South Sea Bubble', a tale of Britain;s first banking crisis. 

    The Museum houses a collection of industrial machinery and artifacts over four floors. Some of the machines are the only surviving examples in the country and have been placed in settings to give a close representation to the time when they were fully operational in the not too distant past.

    Down in the basement, the oil engine ‘Sadie’ provides motive power for part of an extensive collection of locally-manufactured machine tools, including lathes, drills and planers. You can take in the experience of nineteenth century Mytholm Coal Mine, learn about stone extraction and the exploitation of clay in the fireclay industries.

    The Power Gallery on the ground floor illustrates the story of power generation, from the water wheel to the internal combustion engine, by way of steam and electricity. The availability of power, initially from the numerous well-fed streams throughout Calderdale, was key to the growth of local industry.

    The first floor displays products that were made in Calderdale. World-famous names such as Mackintosh’s Toffees and Crossley’s carpets were everyday brands originating in Halifax.

    The top floor is still to be renovated and will be opened progressively over the next few years. 

    The Museum is operated by the Calderdale Industrial Museum Association (CIMA). a registered charity and dedicated group of enthusiastic volunteers.

    Admission:

    Adults: £5 Concessions (senior citizens & students): £4 Accompanied Children aged up to 16: FREE
