Located in beautiful Centre Vale Park, this life size sculpture, cast in steel, has gained a reputation for bringing good luck to anybody that gives it a friendly pat. Go and pose for a photo with The Lucky Dog, give him a pat for luck and enjoy the play areas, open spaces and walking at the Park.
The life size 'Lucky Dog' was carved from a block of expanded polystyrene, which was then cast directly into steel at the Todmorden foundry of Weir Minerals, in a lost-wax process. The sculpture was donated to Centre Vale Park and is installed next to the Memorial Gardens, gazing at the tops of nearby Widdop.
The Lucky Dog was made famous by Derren Brown's TV Show 'The Experiments', back in 2011.

Todmorden Town Hall in Todmorden straddles the Walsden Water and it was situated in both Lancashire and Yorkshire until the county boundary was moved on 1 January 1888. Designed by John Gibson of Westminster, this Grade 1 listed building holds a strong place in the hearts of local people.
Most iconic, from the outside, is the pediment. The carved stonework has two central female figures on a pedestal. The left hand one represents Lancashire (cotton spinning industry) and the right hand one Yorkshire (engineering and agriculture). Below the two figures are different friezes of the industries coming together to prosper on the border.
Inside the building there is an old Magistrate’s Court which now serves as Todmorden Town Council Chamber. The ballroom upstairs spans the length of the building and holds many memories for those who have attended the many varied events in the Town Hall for over 140 years.
Todmorden Town Hall is the People’s Palace. It was gifted to the people of Todmorden by the Fielden family on 6 August 1891. Please do get in touch to share your memories, explore and to ask questions.
