The 121 foot (37 m) high Stoodley Pike Monument dominates the skyline above Todmorden, sitting atop Stoodley Pike, a 1,300-foot (400 m) hill The monument was designed in 1854 by local architect James Green, and completed in 1856 at the end of the Crimean War.
The monument replaced an earlier structure, commemorating the defeat of Napoleon and the surrender of Paris. It was completed in 1815, after the Battle of Waterloo, but collapsed in 1854 after decades of weathering and a lightning strike.
You can only reach the Pike on foot, as there is no vehicular or bicycle access to the monument. Stoodley Pike is accessible by well-defined Right of Way footpaths. The Pennine Way also passes Stoodley Pike. There are many walking routes to the Pike from Todmorden, Hebden Bridge and Mytholmroyd. Walking guides to all these routes available from local Visitor Centres and the Heart of the Pennines online shop.
Stoodley Pike Monument contains a spiral staircase of 39 steps, accessed from its north side. If you visit, please be aware that several of the internal steps are in darkness, so it’s useful to have a torch to light your way, as there are no windows. The entrance to the balcony is on the Monument’s west face, some 40 feet above ground level. The views are well worth the walk and the climb!

The early 19th century Gibson Mill is situated within the site. A tour of the mill tells the history of the valley and the mill over the past 200 years. The mill also has changing exhibitions throughout the year. Gibson Mill is 100% self-sufficient in energy, water and waste treatment. It has a hydro-electric system, solar photovoltaic panels and a log-burning stove fuelled by wood from the estate. You can also rest and recharge at the Weaving Shed Café, serving delicious ethical and locally-produced food and buy the perfect gift or memento in the shop located there. Built in around 1800,Gibson Mill was one of the first mills of the Industrial Revolution. The mill was driven by a water wheel and produced cotton cloth up until 1890. In the early 1900s, Gibson Mill began to be used as an ‘entertainment emporium’ for the local people. After the Second World War, the mill slipped into disuse, and was acquired by the National Trust in 1950. Hardcastle Crags is open all year round from dawn until dusk, admission to Hardcastle Crags and Gibson Mill are FREE. Dogs are welcome (including in the café and mill) if kept under close control.

Anyone can learn to Ski or Snowboard and as one of the UK’s premier ski and snowboarding Centres, we pride ourselves in helping you to learn to the highest possible standard. There are two options. The first is to start with a group taster session to see if you like it or not? If you get the bug, we then have a 6 hour course that runs for three weeks to get you up and running and will get you snowploughing down the slopes. The second option is private lessons. These are tailored to your individual needs; you have your own instructor and the timing of the lessons is more flexible. All lessons include your skis and boots, so all you have to bring with you are gloves and appropriate clothing for the weather.

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 path developed in 2015.

Three escape rooms: one challenge. Your mission is simple; to escape from one of our locked rooms in less than 60 minutes. You will be challenged, physically and mentally. You will need to work as a team if you want to escape. You’ll also need resolve, determination and a good dose of common sense with you if you want to breakout in time. Find the clues, solve the puzzles and beat the clock to breakout.
A fully immersive live indoor game, Project Breakout at Rokt in Brighouse, offers three purpose built breakout rooms to provide you with a state-of-the-art escape room experience.
Designed for small groups of between 2 and 5 players, each room offers its own unique, compelling challenge.
You have been selected to take part in an experiment. Details as to the nature of the experiment cannot be revealed until the day of arrival. All we ask is that live subjects enrol. Not for the faint hearted. This is a test of skill, cunning and bravery. Not everyone will complete the challenge, but those who do will be rewarded with the ultimate prize! More details will be provided in your briefing should you choose to take the challenge. Do you have what it takes to beat the experiment?
You are in the midst of a Zombie Apocalypse. By chance you’ve found yourself locked in an underground bunker owned by a secret Government organisation, but the scientist in charge of the keys ventured outside some time ago to assess the situation and never returned. The hordes of Zombies have begun to descend on the room, and your food and water supplies are exhausted. Suddenly your 2 way radio crackles into life. A rescue chopper has discovered your whereabouts and is on its way to rescue you, but they will only have one attempt to land before the Zombies overwhelm them. Estimated time of arrival is in 60 minutes. Can you find a way out of the room before the chopper is forced to leave, or worse, find yourself overcome by the undead army waiting outside?
Whilst carrying out a mission behind enemy lines you and your team of Secret Agents have been captured. A ransom has been sent to your government, but just as you expected they have denied all knowledge of your existence. Your captors are on their way back to your cell and who knows what horrible things they now have in store for you? Has your luck finally run out, or can you escape to freedom before they return?

Higher than both the Tower of London and the Angel of the North, the towering ROKTFACE wall at ROKT climbing centre in Brighouse, West Yorkshire, will see people climb routes up to 36m. The cost to climb ROKTFACE for competent rope climbers will be £15 for up to 1 hour 30 minutes and that price includes full entry to climb inside ROKT Climbing Centre. For beginners/novice climbers, you will need an instructed session to climb ROKTFACE. These can be pre-booked and cost £30 for one person, £50 for two people, £60 for three people or £70 for four. Basically, the more people the cheaper it is. Group bookings (schools/team building/stag/hen/Scouts/Guides etc) taken too. The climbing wall is being created on one of the faces of a sky-scraping disused grain silos, which sits alongside the Calder and Hebble Navigation and close to the route of The Calderdale Way. Around 2,500 bolts are being drilled to create up to 21 unique routes. The £75,000 project is being led by ROKT climbing in partnership with Calderdale Council to help raise the profile and participation of healthy activity as well as tourism for the area. It will give daredevils views of up to around 20 miles across Yorkshire – the UK’s biggest county. The routes have been set by respected climbers and range from 28m to 36m high.
