Hebden-Bridge has to be the most picturesque village in Halifax. Some of the scenery here, in the middle of the Pennines, is truly breathtaking. Hardcastle Crags is the pick of a very special bunch, where the nature walks are a pleasure to visit any time of year.
Walks along the canal are also popular, but wherever you are, there is a very historic feel. The centre of Hebden Bridge lies very low in the Calder Valley and has had its fair share of floods which has seen shops and houses taking the brunt of flashfloods.
