Calder Valley Line Community Rail Partnership
The Calder Valley train line offers a direct route into a range of exciting leisure and tourism opportunities. The area is blessed with both fascinating local history as well as some of the most stunning landscapes in the North of England.
The Calder Valley has been home to Anne Lister, aka Gentleman Jack, and the poet Ted Hughes. It’s also home to the BBC drama series Happy Valley, amongst many other TV dramas.
We have a number of heritage areas, from the villages of Heptonstall, Mytholmroyd and Hebden Bridge, to the Grade I listed Piece Hall in Halifax and Rochdale and Halifax Town Halls as well as the Grade II listed Shibden Hall in Halifax.
There are a number of fantastic places to visit that are within walking distance of our train stations. We also have a number of places to eat and drink, whether that’s lunch or just grabbing a coffee or a wine or two or just bringing a picnic and enjoying the views.
The Calder Valley line runs parallel with the Rochdale Canal where you can walk from station to station and take in some fabulous scenery. Explore, Discover and Relax along the Calder Valley Line.
