Reopening of Public Toilet Facilities in Calderdale
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.

A superb way to go walking in Calderdale - The Calderdale Way is a 50 mile (80 km) walk exploring the hills, moors and valleys of Calderdale that recently celebrated its 40th anniversary.
It is an ‘up and down’ journey with few level sections. However, the higher levels provide some exceptionally fine panoramic views. The main and link routes to the valley bottom are designed so that they can be completed in short stages.
The Calderdale Way encircles Halifax, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, following old packhorse ways across the open gritstone hillsides with sections of traditional stone causeway, passing through hillside villages and old mill towns on the banks of the River Calder.
There are numerous link paths which connect the Calderdale Way to the valley floor. There are medieval settlements at Lumbutts and Mankinholes, and Withens Gate, where the Pennine Way crosses. A short diversion along the Pennine Way takes in the popular walk to the 100ft monument, Stoodley Pike.
The full length of the route is 51.39 miles, with a total climb of approx 2,600 metres (over 9,000 feet) at a climb rate of 43 metres per mile. This makes a flat equivalent distance of 57.49 miles.
