Luddenden Conservation Society is recruiting!
We’ll be at Luddenden Mayor Making on Saturday 11th September. The society has some funding available for possible new projects around the village, such as
- Natural environment
- Flood prevention
- Energy generation
- Village amenities
- Local history
We need local people who wish to lead or be involved.
Come along to meet us and to put your point of view as to how we can further improve the environment of Luddenden.
We’ll also be holding an open meeting, including a short Annual General Meeting, at 7pm on Monday 27th September, in the Upper Room of St Mary’s Church. Following the AGM there will be plenty of opportunity to help us prioritise future work and new initiatives.
Do come along
Luddenden is a village in West Yorkshire, England, close to Hebden Bridge. It was designated Conservation Area status in 1973, and the Luddenden Conservation Society, a charity, was established in 1975.
The village used to have many shops and a number of churches / chapels and pubs, but now there only remain one pub (the Lord Nelson Inn, frequented by Branwell Bronte when he was employed at Luddendenfoot Railway Station) and one Church (St Mary’s Church). The last of many Methodist Chapels closed in 2011.
The 1970’s ITV series “In Loving Memory” starring Thora Hird and Christopher Beeny was filmed in the village.
Luddenden is located between Sowerby Bridge and Hebden Bridge in the Calder Valley, West Yorkshire. The most useful map of the area is Ordnance Survey Outdoor Leisure 21 (South Pennines).
You can reach Luddenden by bus from Halifax and Hebden Bridge. The nearest Railway Stations are at Mytholmroyd and Sowerby Bridge
