The Old Pack Horse Bridge

Sandra Cockayne

Low Row, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

The Pack Horse bridge is in Hebden Bridge, W Yorkshire, England, UK, which I visited recently.

Known as the Pennine Centre, Hebden Bridge takes its name from the packhorse bridge over Hebden Water. The town developed in late medieval times as a river-crossing and meeting point of packhorse routes from Halifax to Heptonstall, Burnley and Rochdale.
Textiles have been important in the Upper Calder Valley for centuries, but it was not until mechanisation and steam power were introduced from the late 18th century that Hebden Bridge began to grow significantly.

Information sourced from Hebden Bridge Tourist Information Board.
