Open all year round, Manor Heath Park's Walled garden is part of this nineteen acre Green Flag Award and Yorkshire in Bloom Gold Award winning park.
The Walled Garden was once used to grow flowers, fruit and vegetables for the former Manor Heath Mansion (you can read about the history of Manor Heath Park and the Mansion here) and is today used to demonstrate different types of gardening techniques of topical interest and bedding plant trials for Calderdale's parks.
There are several sections in the walled garden:
The Container Garden demonstrates the different ways of displaying plants in pots and hanging baskets.
The Alpine Mint Walk. Enjoy the fragrance of the Corsican Mint planted between the paving stones. Bees and insects love the small blue flowers during the summer.
The Rock Garden is made from local sandstone and planted with specialist alpines and bulbs.
Herbaceous Borders using traditional plants for a magnificent summer flowering display.
Prairie Planting. A bed specially designed and planted with grasses and some herbaceous perennials for very low maintenance i.e. no staking and only trimming back in spring. The coloured grasses and seed heads last right through the autumn and into winter.
The Necklace Garden boasts tradtional plants and old-fashioned roses growing in a formal setting.
The Winter Garden features plants of winter interest including flowers, stems, foliage and berries; to illustrate how gardens can still be attractive in winter.
The Mediterranean Garden shows how plants normally found in the Med can be grown in Calderdale, with plenty of ideas for plants to grow in domestic gardens for the water conscious gardener. The gravel garden shows plants that will survive in hot, dry places.
Exhibition English Garden This professional design gives colour and texture throughout the growing season with many unusual plants and bulbs.
Demonstration Beds. Watch out in summer for trials of new varieties of bedding plants and bedding schemes. If successful, some will be put into practice in flower beds across Calderdale. The Dahlias and Chrysanthemums are grown in the summer by volunteer growers who grow to show standards. We are very fortunate to have them helping us out and we thank them for the time they spend here.
Rose Walk and Plummery. Enjoy the shade of the willow tunnel and rose walk; see the craftsmanship in the curved dry stone walls built from recycled stone. The Victoria Plum Trees were donated by members of the public.

Situated close to Brighouse town centre, the park is easy to reach and has free car parking for visitors. Why not take a stroll around the park, sit and relax in the surroundings, enjoy a picnic, or explore the natural woodlands and follow the path of Clifton Beck that runs through the heart of Wellholme? The newly opened cafe offers a place to relax and chat with family and friends over a drink and snack. If you prefer something more energetic, then perhaps enjoy a game of tennis on one of the four courts, or a game of bowls on one of the two crown greens or the flat bowling green. An exciting playground with scramble net, climbing frame, swings and a roundabout gives hours of enjoyment to our younger visitors. A demanding skateboard park is a test for those who like a spot of boarding and for those who prefer something less strenuous then there is a putting green and crazy golf.

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.
