Now that most people obtain their water from mains supply, the wellheads which once provided their only source of drinking water lie neglected by the sides of our busy main roads. However, their former importance cannot be underestimated. In times past wells and springs provided not only a source of clean water but also a meeting place, a site of religious veneration or a place to look for a cure for illness. In the 19th century this became big business as people sought to make their fortunes through the healing power of water.

World Dock Pudding Championship

Mytholmroyd Community & Leisure Centre

From 12 noon till 5pm

The Dock Pudding is a recipe unique to the Calder Valley. It uses the sweet variety of dock leaves which have a spinach like taste and grow quite widely round here - not to be confused with the more common form of dock leaves which grow throughout the country. Recipes vary slightly but they might include butter or oil, onions, oatmeal and seasoning. The World Championships take place each April in Mytholmroyd and have so since the early 1970s.
