Group visits can also be made at other times by arrangement. Please park on the lower plateau, next to the caravans.

At the centre of the village are the ruins of the Church of St Thomas a' Becket built between 1256 and 1260. Later adaptations gave the Church two naves, two aisles and two chantry chapels as well as a tower. Following a great storm in 1847 the west face of the tower fell away. Some measure of repair took place and the church remained in use up to 1854 when the present church, St Thomas the Apostle, was completed at a cost of £7,000. The ruins of St Thomas a' Becket are carefully maintained and are open to the public. Open air services are occasionally conducted there.

It is a listed building with some historical and architectural interest, lying in the Pennine hills between Todmorden and Hebden Bridge. Many walks can be made from the cottage. The Pennine and Calderdale Ways, on which lies Stoodley Pike, traverse the ridge of hills behind the property and the Rochdale/Leeds Canal with towpath walks runs through the valley beneath. Todmorden with its shops and market is two miles away and can be reached by bus. Hebden Bridge, Howarth and the Bronte country, the Worth Valley Steam Railway, Halifax with the Piece Hall, the Eureka Museum and theatres are all within easy reach.

Steeped in history, the Pennine Way National Trail chases along the mountain tops along the rugged backbone of England and offers 268 miles of the finest upland walking in England. A once in a lifetime experience.
The Pennine Way enters Calderdale at Blackstone Edge, passing Stoodley Pike, dropping down into the valley at Callis, climbing back up to Colden and over the moors to Widdop. Walkers often say this stretch of over 20 miles is one of the best on the whole route. The Trail is very well way-marked and there are some great views from the route (especially from the iconic Stoodley Pike).
If you want to detour into Hebden Bridge on your way, you can use the Hebden Bridge Loop developed in 2015.

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.
All rooms at Todmorden Town Hall are licensed for civil ceremonies. All enquiries welcome and individual needs can be discussed and you are welcome on a pre-visit to see the magnificent hall so you can decide if it is the right place for you. There is no obligation to hire Todmorden Town Hall - we're happy for you to come and look around. Get in touch to confirm what date you'd like to look around, or to arrange a day.
The building has many stories to tell and is home to a Heritage Centre. Guided ‘Tea and Tours’ are available for groups with fully trained volunteer tour guides. Tours cost £4.50 per person, with a minimum group charge of £45.00. All tours include tea, coffee and biscuits.
Free ‘Taster Tours’ are available for individuals and couples on the first Sunday of the month (except January) and start at 2pm opposite the iconic pediment. There is no need to book a tour: you can just turn up. Please note that these tours last just one hour and are less comprehensive than the ‘Tea and Tours’.
For individuals and couples who would like to enjoy a more thorough tour there are also ‘Behind the Scenes Tours’ of Todmorden Town Hall available. These include access to the secret spaces of Todmorden Town Hall, including Caretaker’s Flat, bathroom in the attic and cellar. ‘Behind the Scenes Tours’ are charged at £6.50 per person and include tea, coffee and biscuits.

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.
