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.

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 developed in 2015.

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!
