HEBDEN BRIDGE

Hebden Bridge developed first as a river crossing, taking its name from the old packhorse bridge over Hebden Water, and from the 18th C as a textile town. Now it is known for its sense of community, array of independent shops, music festivals, art-deco cinema, walks along the Rochdale Canal and being 'Gay friendly' (one BBC article referred to it as 'the lesbian capital of the UK').
