Todmorden is home to the Incredible Edible movement and you will find various plots around town where fresh produce is grown. “But won’t people just come along and help themselves to free food?” say the critics. “That’s the whole point” comes the reply, a response which completely wrong-foots anyone of a Daily Mail mindset.

Todmorden has also been home to two Nobel Prize-wining scientists: Geoffrey Wilkinson and John Cockcroft. Sadly, towns don’t get prizes for hillclimbs because Todmorden has a few contenders:

Doghouse Lane
The Shepherd’s Rest
Todmorden to Blackshaw Head
Todmorden to Bride Stones
