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
