Hebden Bridge

The town developed in the medieval times as a meeting point for the packhorse routes from Halifax to Heptonstall, Burnley and Rochdale.The access to major wool markets meant that Hebden Bridge was an ideal location for water powered weaving mills. At one time Hebden was so well-known for its clothing manufacture that it was known as “Trouser Town”.
