Located at the head of the Upper Calder Valley, Todmorden is a picturesque market town on the boundary of Yorkshire and Lancashire. The growth of the town accelerated during the industrial revolution with the establishment of textile mills alongside the Rochdale Canal and later the Leeds-Manchaster Railway. The railway and the direct services to Manchester continue to attract homeowners to the area, as Todmorden offers a regular service taking only 30 minutes.
The amazing landscapes that surround Todmorden will inevitably dominate your spare time, with local landmarks such as Stoodley Pike and the beach a Gaddings Dam (800 metres above sea level, and 60 miles from the coast) to tempt you out into the hills, back in the town itself you will find several pubs and restaurants along with the Hipperdrome Theatre, which offers comedy nights, cinema screenings along with live performances.
The premium houses in Todmorden tend to be located in the hills around the town itself, many properties are farms or their converted buildings offering spectacular views of the countryside.
Todmorden Cricket Club has a rich history, until the county lines were re-drawn in 1888 the Yorkshire-Lancashire boundary ran through the middle of the ground. As well as being the club of several former England Cricketers, the current South African captain, Faf Du Plessis played for Todmorden. The countryside around Todmorden with the Pennine Way and Calderdale Way across the hillside lends itself to mountain biking, fell Running and bouldering.
