    Reopening of Public Toilet Facilities in Calderdale

    When you’re visiting Calderdale in the coming months, please be aware that due to the COVID-19 virus, not all of the public toilet facilities in Calderdale are currently open.

    To help support the reopening of local businesses and enable those with certain medical conditions to get out and about, from Tuesday 7th July Calderdale Council is reopening one toilet block in each of Calderdale’s main towns:

    Brighouse – Thornton Square

    Elland – Town Hall Square

    Halifax – Albion Street

    Hebden Bridge – New Road

    Sowerby Bridge – Wharf Street

    Todmorden – Brook Street

    The toilets will be open Tuesday to Saturday from 9.30am-4.30pm.

    All of these toilet blocks have disabled toilets accessible with RADAR keys.

    These locations have been chosen as they are all self-contained, individually accessed unisex facilities, which will help to reduce the risk of infection transmission.

    The blocks will be subject to additional cleaning with frequent ‘touch points’ disinfected. Users are asked to help maintain hygiene standards between cleans by following the advice in the increased signage in place in all facilities.

    As always, it’s incredibly important to maintain good hygiene by washing your hands with soap and water before and after use, for at least 20 seconds, avoid touching your face and follow the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ guidance. Regular checks of facilities will take place to ensure there is sufficient soap available.

    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.
