Was Margaret Thatcher really a statesMAN?
Working in Hebden Bridge is a delight and I'm glad that remote readers of these pages feel that they want to come. So why don't they?

Enoch Marshall left Brighouse in 1854
and came to Launceston in Tasmania.
Any relatives still in existence?
I would appreciate help with family
Love the photos of Yorkshire.
Why not put a good map of surrounding area?

This is the best laid out web site I have seen on the Internet. I have never been to Yorkshire, but the pictures and other information make me want to go. On the election, if I were there, I would write in the name of the greatest British statesman of the last 40 years: Maggie Thatcher.

I am a university student in Provo, Utah and I am doing a research project on Todmorden. Unfortunately, Todmorden's page is somewhat less informative than yours. I would greatly appreciate any information on the general area or any tourism photos of the area. If anyone has any information they would be willing to share and the smallest desire to actually write someone that doesn't have an e-mail address, I'd appreciate it.
Sincerely, Amy Harris

I am wondering why our family left the West Riding
of Yorkshire in 1630. If any knowledge is available
of immigration to USA please let me know. I would truly love to
visit your beautiful area someday.

You web site is very good. I was so suprised there was so much information. I am interested in the history of Hebden Bridge, can anyone recommend a web site that contains information as early as the middle ages. My father, grandfather etc were born in Halifax, Yorkshire, but I think the family may originally be from the Hebden Bridge area.

this page represents an outrage to civilisation and as such must be retained at all costs,
I have been watchig your page grow for about a year now. My husband and myself visited Hepden in the summer of 1995. We have wonderful cousins there and will be visiting again in 1998. Until then, your site will remind us of the beauty in West Yorksire.

I'd appreciate any information pertaining to the actual Mytholmroyd/Hebden Bridge places and landmarks featuring in Ted Hughes' short story from WODWO entitled "Sunday". There is, for instance, mention of the Top Wharfe Pub, possibly based on a real pub by the sound of the description leading up to it etc.. Also, there is mention of a church near the Memorial Gardens in Myhtolmroyd.

How wonderful to find Hebden Bridge on the web. I grew up in Rochdale and was a visitor to Hebden Bridge many times. I now live in Australia and miss the Pennine scenery. I especially liked the photos which you had shown and felt that this is sorely lacking in other sites I had visited to help my 'yearning' of familiar scenery. Keep up the good work.
Hi ! Chris
Saw you to-day with Greg?

As a one time resident of Hebden Bridge I've watched with interest the
recent growth of this website. I wondered if anyone might be interested
in corresponding with me by e-mail, always bearing in mind that I have
lived in Canada for the past forty years.

I live in the Netherlands, but I've been in Hebden Bridge a few times now
because my girlfriend lives there. I like the place very much. It's a
friendly little town in a beautiful environment. If I could find a job there
I would move right away. I am surprised that there is so much information
about HB on internet. I like the 'hot debates' issue. Sometimes I know
things that are happening in HB before my girlfriend knows them. It's a
petty that there is no 'bakery site'. I would like to have one of those
delicious cakes from the bakery shop on the little main square right now!

The Hebden Bridge Web
pages seem to be different from many of the other sites based around a
geographical locality. Other sites seem to be based upon attracting
tourism to an area, and only give a sketchy picture of what the place is
like. The Hebden Bridge pages really seem to have developed a strong
picture of the locality. I'm especially interested in the way that you
have a list of the local 'virtual community'.
I am from the West Riding (I know,I know, it doesn't exist now,just shows
you how old I am!) but have lived in USA for the past 15 years. It was
wonderful to come across this Web Site. Most people here seem to think
England is London and have no idea about the Industrial North and its
heritage,the wild moors and scenery I grew up with. Now at least
I can point a few of my friends to your site and let them see for
themselves what I talk about!I used to enjoy the winter country dances in
Mytholmroyd ....nothing like that in
A short note to applaud your work on these pages.
I often use them as an example in introductory sessions to the internet
that we run in Kirklees. I hope that they begin to develop as a real
'virtual' community to complement the great community that Hebden already
Hi, I came across Hebden Bridge Web - nay stumbled across it - purely by
accident. I was struck by the sense of community
instilled by these pages ... this could be a reflection of Hebden Bridge
as a place - I don't know - but it's a sense of community spirit I've
never encountered on any other site purporting to support/reflect a
local community (perchance, dare I say, most are in the game purely for
the money), especially the recent messages page which displayed clearly
the utility of the site for ... what would you call them ... Hebden
Having moved down to London from Hebden Bridge 6 months ago, it was
really nice to be reminded of all that fresh air, steep hills and cheap
living (and woollybacks!!) None of that down here I'm afraid!
Just a quick note to say I thoroughly enjoyed the Hebden Bridge web pages. I grew up just down the road in Littleborough, and now being consigned to Coventry, I do rather miss the place - there are sadly no hills and moors here, it's just all too flat if you ask me.
I've bookmarked your pages, so you can be sure I'll be back...
What a revelation it was to find the Hebden Bridge page on the World Wide Web. Having spent four years at university in London, I have found that only a very few people have been fortunate enough to experience the rural beauty of Hebden Bridge and the surrounding area. You can imagine my delight when I was able to show my friends the glorious technicolour scenery of Hebden Bridge via the Internet.
Thankyou for your dedication and commitment in promoting Hebden Bridge
