Riverview Bed and Breakfast dates from 1930 and retains many of the Art Deco features. Situated on an elevated bank between the Rochdale canal and Calder river, it enjoys wonderful views of the surrounding hills and woodland that characterise this most southerly part of the Yorkshire Dales.
Hebden Bridge town centre is a ten minute walk along the picturesque Rochdale canal where you can enjoy a vibrant and eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, cafés, galleries, a theatre and the historic picture house.
The famous Stubbing Wharf pub with its live music, story telling and wonderful food is half a minute’s walk in the other direction.
Excellent rail and road links make this a wonderful base from which to explore Yorkshire’s finest cities and countryside.
History of Hebden Bridge
The steep sided valley and access to major wool markets meant that Hebden Bridge was ideal for water powered weaving mills and enabled it to develop as a thriving textile town in the early 19th century. It was once known as ‘Trouser Town’ due to the large amount of cloth manufactured here!
Many of the woodland walks reveal the chimney stacks and derelict mills that serve as a reminder of the town’s industrial heritage.
During the 1970’s and 80’s the town saw an influx of artists, writers, photographers, musicians, alternative practitioners and green / new age activists which has heralded a boom in tourism to the area.
In 2003 the town was granted Fairtrade Zone status.
