    Waterstalls Farm Cottage boasts an elevated position at the end of a no-through lane, roughly half a mile from the main road on the fringes of Walsden in the Upper Calder Valley. Right on the Pennine Way and close to Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, this is the ideal destination for a lovely break away with your family or friends. This characterful holiday home is nestled within the owner's grounds, with horses grazing in the fields and gentle lakes you can walk around, before spending your down time within the cosy sitting room. You can sink into the sofa on a cool wintry evening and get toasty and warm by the fire as you catch up on your favourite TV shows. Use the kitchen next door to rustle up a home-cooked meal and get together around the dining table to discuss plans for the following day. Later, choose from a super king-size bedroom upstairs, which has zip/link beds for flexibility, or catch your rest in the single room. They are each served by the well-appointed shower room and boast remarkable views of rolling hills and vales. Outside, you have your very own private patio area for soaking up a balmy afternoon with a drink and you can greet the horses over the fence. No smoking and no pets allowed. We do not accept children under the age of 14.

    Ted Hughes (1930-1998) was born at 1 Aspinall Street, Mytholmroyd, on the 17th August 1930. He lived there until he was seven, when his family moved to Mexborough. During his childhood he spent many hours exploring the countryside around Mytholmroyd, and these experiences and the influences of the landscape on him were to inform much of his later poetry.

    One of the greatest poets of his generation, Hughes also wrote stories, plays, reviews and essays. He translated the work of, amongst others, Ovid, Racine, Aeschylus and Euripides. He wrote extensively for children, including the story The Iron Man, which was turned into the Disney blockbuster The Iron Giant. Hughes's interests in other art forms led to many collaborations, most famously with the artist Leonard Baskin.

    Although best known in the UK, Hughes was a writer of international standing. He won numerous awards throughout his career, including four for his final collection, Birthday Letters. Hughes became Poet Laureate in 1984 until his death on 28th October 1998.

    Fired Earth: Decline of the Industry 1935-2019 Chris Bateman, member The final part of the story covers the decline of the industry from the inter-war period through the steady decline of the immediate post-war period to the decimation of the 1960s and 70s as steel making went over to the BOS process; gas works closed as natural gas took over; the clean air acts eliminated coal for heating; and concrete and plastic became dominant in building.
