Hi Richard Shortall. I think the fire you remember was Robertshaw Bros. It burnt down before i came out to Canada in 1967. I also lived up Dodnaze and i knew the Shaw family very well. I also have Dennis Shaw's address, if you want it drop me an E-mail. I also noticed a young lady called West talks to you quite often, is her fathers name Ken West or The other Brother who married Shiela Boyland (i think i've got the right name).If i remember they both played in the band.

And a Merry Christmas to you Richard! Tried e-mailing you - lost in the ether, address wrong! My mum and dad say the big fire was possibly Barbreck Upholsteries in the late 60's and it was a whopper! Hope the address comes through, you'll like the photos.

It was in England, at school, where I first learned, "Away in a manger, no crib for his bed, the little lord Jesus laid down his sweet head, the stars in the bright sky shone down where he lay, the little lord Jesus asleep in the hay." I wish all the people of Yorkshire a very Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas to you Carole.

It’s a good time, at the end of another year, to post a few ‘thank-yous’ on this forum. Thanks to Chris Ratcliffe for continuing to host the HB Web: creating a little corner of cyberspace where those with an interest in this remarkable little town can congregate and chew the fat. Thanks, too, for publishing my little comedy books - ‘View From the Bridge’ and ‘Back to the Bridge’ - which, bizarrely, are the best-selling titles around these parts. Once we get a distribution network that extends as far as, oh, Bacup and Huddersfield, there’ll be no stopping us... Thanks to everyone who has bought the books and, hopefully, had a few laughs. Amazingly, only a handful of people seem to have noticed that there is no detectable plot, and that the characters don’t appear to relate to each other. What this says about my psyche I dread to think. Thanks to the local newspapers who, by banning the books, have helped to push sales along nicely. Thanks to all the retailers who are stocking the books - especially the Book Case and Rock Bottom here in Hebden Bridge. And thanks to those who have emailed me with their comments about the online episodes. The, ahem, Milltown Trilogy will be completed in the spring, with the publication of ‘A Bridge Too Far’: a title acknowledging the fact that most people will probably be sick to death of my puerile jokes and jaundiced observations by then. And that will be that. The books have been a lot of fun to write, and all chapters will remain freely available on the HB Web, but there’s only so much mileage in poking gentle fun at your home town. There are other towns... Best wishes to all visitors to the HB Web during the panic-stricken void that Christmas has become.

Carole A. My Email is on it's way. Do any of you remember a huge fire? I remember sitting on a hill overlooking the town and watching with a lot of neighbors as a huge building burned in the distance. We used to slide down that hill using carboard boxes as sleds. I think I must have attended the larger of the 2 schools because I remeber when I got caught steeling cookies, I was at the top of a staircase which overlooked a large lunchroom. There were many girls eating lunch at those tables and the reason we were caught was that my friend threw his bandaid into one of the soups that the girls were eating. She must have called the Principal. I also remember a friend by the name of Thomas Hecker. Does anyone remember Guy Faux night( sorry if I have spelled that incorrectly ). Hope to hear from you soon.

Carole, the sweet shop below Stubbings school was run by Mrs Breeze. In the late 50's, every Saturday night I went down to the newsagents shop at the bottom of the hill to collect her "Green Final" and she would reward me with a bar of chocolate. I liked to think that she got the paper to she how Halifax Town were doing but she always opened it at the horse racing pages.

Hi Gillian - will try e-mailing you and see what happens - this B.T. package leaves a lot to be desired - we have had problems before. Let's see what happens! Richard S. - if you send me your address (via E-mail!??! -see comments to Gillian) I have some great photos I took recently of the Calder Valley that I'm quite proud of which I could send you, showing Dodnaze quite clearly. The shop you refer to I think is Mrs. Breeze's (though my sister and I have debated this at length!) We both vaguely remember the name Allistair. You lived on Wadsworth Lanes, by the way. As a matter of interest - an article in last week's Big Issue about "View From The Bridge" - the book is certainly a talking point!

Hello Carole, I hope your sister tunes in. I still have ties over there. My Uncle, Richie lives in Manchester and My Aunt Bridie is in Sussex. She just visited us for a few weeks. My Aunt Mary who lived outside of London has now moved to Spain. I don't know if I went to school with Ian. I remember that Bret Shaw would walk me to school. and drop me off. His school seemed to be located just after or before mine. I remember the shop at the bottom of the hill. It was always decorated beautifully for the holidays. I used to get Lucky Bags at the shop at the first turn on the hill. The ice cream man used to come around at night and my dad, instead of getting cones, would bring out a bowl and fill it up with the soft ice cream. There was also syrup that one could get on top of the ice cream, strawberry and some kind of green syrup. Did you know Allister, I think his last name may have been McAllister, but after all these years I may not remember the last name. Oh well! Thanks again for all your help.

Hi Gillian West-as-was: yes, I was your daughter in "The Green Knight" (I think it was called) and Lorraine Tate was your other one (I had a day out in Leeds with her only yesterday! She still lives in Halifax.) There were three princes, Gawain, Gawain and Gon - remember? I still have a photo of it somewhere! Boy were those wimples tricky!

I was born and used to live in Hebden Bridge, and have just discovered the website - brilliant! I would like to get in touch with anyone I went to Calder High school with from 1966 - 71. I still visit at least once a year as my mum lives in Halifax. I moved to the Isle of Wight at the end of the 5th year. I remember Carole Tyler - were you my daughter in the school play once when I was the queen?!!!

Very interesting site, it is good to see such a wide range of interests displayed. I was planning on coming over from Addingham to wander round HB as I used to live there 10 years ago. I logged on to see what was happening, unfortunately there is no information about HB's xmas activities. An up-to-date banner on current activities would be good for tourists. From a cultural exchange point of view please look at our developing village site

Just to set the record straight - Back to the Bridge is now in first place on The Book Case bestseller list and View from the Bridge is a close runner up - our expectations are for them to take the numbers one and two spots in our annual bestseller list at the end of the year. With Birthday Letters in third place perhaps we should be looking forward to having a local lad again as Poet Laureate - who knows! Viva HB

I once knew a sprightly young lass from Hebden Bridge named Susan Lamonby. I believe she still resides there. Perhaps she will see this notice andd e-mail me a long overdue hello. Should anyone there wish to look up her phone # and inform her of my inquiry, I would appreciate the gesture. I have visited your city from the states a number of times and have wonderful memories of the people, and Pennines.

Richard Shortall - I'm a touch older than you (!) so didn't go to school with you. However, my maiden name was Tyler, my brother's name is Ian and is about your age so you may have been at school with him. If my sister ever reads this (she assures me she does) (hi Lesley; read your e-mail yet? - I got that coat) she can tell you about the Shaws as she still lives locally. Actually come to think about it if you were about 5 you wouldn't have gone to Riverside, it must have been Central Street, though most kids from Dodnaze went to Stubbins. If you look on the photo on the home page (just under the Guestbook bit) you will see Stubbins school - the houses there are the ones I think you mean by the "rows of houses 4 deep" and the "great stairs". Happy remembering!

Anyone else had experiences of trying to use the rip off telephone dating services in the Hebden Creosote Times. Don't you just love its over lenghthy explanations at a pound a minute, the repeat instructions at a pound a minute, the full menu waffle at a pound a minute, and the left in adverts from god knows when. And not forgetting the inability to get through or beyond the initial blurb at a pound a minute. I await with interest the Hebden Cresote Times full expose of this dating rip off.

Carole Adams, Thanks for the input. I am 40, did I go to school with you? Do you know where the Shaw's are now? When I went to the school I got in trouble for sneaking upstairs at lunchtime and stealing those great cookies they used to serve. I was brought to the principals office and I remember a whole row of canes. She used one on my hand. Have not stole cookies since. I also remember a friend named Thomas Hecker. Any more input?

Queens Village, N.Y, USA - Saturday, November 28, 1998 at 04:47:10 (GMT)
Richard Shortall - you obviously lived up Dodnaze (so did I, up till 1972) , went to Riverside School (so did I) and knew the Shaws - so did I! Hope that helps. By the way, if Jane Helliwell, living in Topanga Canyon, L.A., ever reads this - we seem to have lost touch again

Well, Johnny Cigarettes, I’m proud to say that here in Hebden Bridge we have drug abusers from all social classes. And the local newspapers considered my book, View From the Bridge, so “rose-tinted”, that they summarily banned it. But “decadent”? Yeah, you’re probably on the button there. And long may Hebden Bridge remain so...

Everyone is happy to heap it on Hebden Bridge but let's not forget that this website provides only a cosy middle class, rose-tinted perspective of Hebden. The Hebden I know is decadent, small minded and drug ridden. Just listen to the councillors for a good slice of the real Hebden.

Things have moved on a little since I lived in the Calder Valley!! Good site - and I enjoy "View from the Bridge" a great deal. Having been born in Boulderclough ( long since overrun with rainbow window stickers, pot plants and VW camper vans) I appreciate the humour. If there is anybody else out there from Boulderclough, let me know. It happens - people do admit it.! Occasionally. In the middle of the South China sea, on a very small boat, coming back from an island pub - naturally - I met someone who sheepishly admitted he was from Boulder - but we were in serious danger of drowning so it was understandable he felt like confessing. Having survived I asked my grandmother ( Doris Aspinall) if she knew the guy - her first question was "was he drunk" - and then told me that he built the houses in front of the chapel - which subsequently slid down the hill into Finkle street. Not surprising it took a near death expereince for him to admit to a Boulder connection. Maybe we can set up a Boulder web site - people might mistake it for our more illustrious cousin in the states.!

OK so no response from my last message. How about any descendants of Martin Oliver a farmer from Nutclough whose daughter was Rhoda May Oliver and who married John Cockcroft Hardman in 1890? Also looking for any descendants of Ethel Thompson who married Harold Hardman around 1922? They had a son Jack Hardman. HELP!!!

Hi, I'm happy I found this great site! Maybe someone can help me. I lived in HB about 1962-3, I was about 5. I went to a school in the village. The school had a river running by it. I had to walk a long way up a road that wound to the right. On that hill my uncle Pat lived and my uncle Patsi Kenny and aunt Noneen lived also. When I got to the top of the hill, there were rows of houses about 4 deep. I lived on the first row on the left about the 4th house from the corner. Our next door neighbors were the Shaw's. Lisa was about 11 and had a younger brother Bret and an older brother Dennis. I remeber Lisa broke her ankle on the swings next to Bob's store. My friend's name was Allister. I remember little more. Can anyone help?

I believe the White Lion own some cottages and I wondered if someone could give me their phone number. (I notice they're not in the directory!) Alternatively, are there any more accommodation sources? Thank you.

I'm not quite sure whether the Hebden Bridge web page makes me feel terribly homesick or terribly comforted... It's certainly a superb site, and I'm not sure how many towns can boast web pages of a similar calibre. Well done HB! Not that it isn't entirely motivated by the personal tastes of the residents rather than genuine local interest. For example, the Sylvia Plath sites... hmmm. Not quite sure how Hebden Bridge can truly lay claim to Plath. Still, as I try to explain to Southerners who just don't know, Hebden Bridge isn't so much a town as a state of mind..! A wonderful site, and very much appreciated.

Moo Moo...... Hello fellow hebden friends. I may seem mad but....if you know me, you'll probably understand. If you don't it doesn't really matter. Here's a little discription of my favourite part of hebden bridge...see if you can guess where it is... It's dim, it's got chairs, if you stare long enough at the walls you may realise the corners need re-filling, it's also has been mine and many others 2nd home for atleast the past 2 years. Thankyou Hebden, you may not be the best place in the world but I've had a great time. (It beats Salford anyway!)

ATTENTION LOUISE STOTT I tried to e-mail this to your address but for some reason it didnt recognise your address so here it is on the guest book. I cant believe that such a small town like Hebden has such an extensive web page! Im from New Zealand. My father David Ibbotson was born in Cragg Vale and I still have many relatives in Mytholmroyd. When ever I am in the UK I always make a point of coming up to Hebden. It is a beautiful place. I just love the moors and walking along the river in the summer time. It is one of the most beautiful parts of the country. The last time I was in Hebden, I stayed at the Nutclough - very nice. Its great how people just pop in there after a day walking on the moors at any time of the year. I will be up in Hebden probably around October this year and probably stay with relatives in Cragg. This time when I come up I think I will visit the Bronty house. One of the most vivid memories I have was one year standing up on the moors at my fathers old farm house where he lived as a child. The wind and rain were howling in and I just felt so exposed to the elements. It was just wonderful looking over the valley to the old york stone houses on the other side. No other place quite like it. Hope this helps your research. Julie Ibbotson julie_nz@hotmail.com

Found your web page the other night, and we love it!! Just about as good as being there (cheaper, anyway). I was raised in Hebden Bridge, went to school at CHS, and left England in 1972 to come to Canada. Only meant to stay here for 2 years - what the hell happened??? However, one good thing about Vancouver is the great fish & chips. One bad thing is no one sells or knows how to make TEA CAKES!! And what is fish & chips without a tea cake?? If anyone there has a recipe for tea cakes, I would love to get it. And if anyone there knows Tony Greenwood (Carr House), please tell him we said "Hi" (he was married to my sister, Margaret). Tell Tony to e-mail us if he is on-line. Keep up the excellent web page. We have it bookmarked, and we will be a faithful reader. Ta ta for now. Trevor Cunliffe (and wife, Linda)

I just returned home from 2 glorious months in Hebden Bridge. My wife, 5 children and I rented an old farmhouse (Great Burlees Farm) from June through July, 1998, and spent a wonderful summer in your beautiful town. It was hard to leave, and we all hope to go back some day. Cheers to all. Scott.

Was doing a search for the name WALSHAW and tripped on your wonderful site. Can anyone help me? I saw mention of a Walshaw Lodge in your list of events for the Arts Festival and understand that there is a hamlet Walshaw nearby. Would appreciate any information you can give me on these places, present and historical. My ancestors lived in the Yorkshire area for hundreds of years. Thanks a million to anyone who will take the time to help! Teri Howard.

Talking about Winter camping with a colleague just now, set my thoughts in motion; all the way from Ottawa Canada to Hebden Bridge. I lived in Salford until 1966 and during the late forties I used to Winter camp at Hebden Bridge. I suddenly had a yearning to see the old place again and so here I am. Thank you for the opportunity.

It's a pleasure to visit your web page once again. I have visited your fair village on two occasions and hopefully will return possibly next year. I have a grandson currently visiting his aunt who resides in Heptonstall. God Bless.

Anne, the church is dedicated to St James, and the Hole in the Wall pub (a rebuilding of an earlier pub) still stands by the old packhorse bridge.
