Rohan Hebden Bridge

Hebden Bridge is a beautiful market town nestled in the Calder Valley, eight miles west of Halifax, situated at the confluence of the River Calder and the River Hebden. Hebden Bridge (originally Heptenbryge) started as a settlement where the Halifax to Burnley hilltop packhorse route dropped down into the valley. The word Hebden is thought to come from the Anglo-Saxon Heopa Denu, “bramble (or wild rose) valley”. The town developed during the 19th and 20th centuries due to its access to major wool markets and the steep wet hills – perfect for the water powered weaving mills. The wool trade brought with it the Rochdale Canal and the Manchester and Leeds Railway.

Richard Harris and his son DavidHebden Bridge has developed over the past few decades into a haven for local artists and the town itself has an unusually high density of independent shops – well worth a visit is the Yorkshire Soap Company, the source of the bubbles that float throughout the town! There always seems to be some local event taking place, from the Annual Easter Monday Duck Race to the Hebden Bridge Blues Festival, the Hebden Bridge Handmade Parade to the Vintage Car Weekend.

Our shop could not be better situated on St Georges Square, opposite the site of the Old Bridge Mill. There are plenty of walks from the town itself, one that takes in Hell Hole Rocks (better than it sounds!), or if you want a challenge there is a great 13 mile (21k) mountain bike ride starting from Hebden Bridge considered moderate to challenging for mountain bikers – download the PDF from Pennine Bridleway.

    We’re all looking forward to a great Bank Holiday Weekend at Rohan in Hebden Bridge. At the moment the weather forecast looks promising too… We’re open 0930-1700 Good Friday 18/4, and Saturday 19/4, closed Sunday 20/4, and then open again 1100-1600 Easter Monday, for the annual Hebden Bridge Duck Race.

  2. David @ Hebden Bridge says:

    Maybe it was a touch of the Duck fever thats going through Hebden Bridge but Roger the Rohan Duck’s training session this afternoon was a little “too Malardy” for our liking. A winner in 2012 he was left in no doubt that to win Mondays big race the Annual Hebden Bridge Duck Race things will have to improve.
    Come and see how Rohan’s duck does on Easter Monday at the Hebden Bridge Duck Race, Quack off at 1500.

  3. David @ Hebden Bridge says:

    Excitement is building for the Annual Hebden Bridge Duck Race on Easter Monday. The Rohan Duck a winner in 2012 is once again paddling away for the Red Team in this years business race (Quack Off 1500). Don’t miss out on what always is a fun day in Hebden Bridge!

  4. David @ Hebden Bridge says:

    Do you have your Hebden Bridge Annual Duck Race ticket yet? Organised by the rotary club every Easter Monday thousands of rubber ducks are sent down the river in a race across the finish line with prizes for the winner and runners up. Tickets to enter the race are £1 each and are available in most stores in Hebden Bridge including the Rohan store.
