    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 path developed in 2015.

    The Summit Tunnel at Walsden is one of the oldest railway tunnels in the world. Just over 1.6 miles (2.6 km) long, the Tunnel was built between 1838 and 1841 by the Manchester and Leeds Railway. The Tunnel was the longest in the world when it opened. Until the Tunnel was completed, trains ran to both ends and coaches took passengers the two miles or so before they could resume their journey by rail.

    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!

    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.
