Todmorden, or 'Tod' as known by locals, is a market and parish town in West Yorkshire. However, this location is better known for its neighbour town Hebden Bridge.
The town centre occupies the steep Pennine valleys, which form around the shape of the town. The town is also surrounded by moorlands. Through these valleys is a footpath, called the Pennine Way, which runs from Derbyshire into the Borders of Scotland. A monument to the dead of the Napoleonic wars stands in this walk-way.
Todmorden has two Nobel Prize winners: Prof. Sir John Cockroft (Physics) and Prof. Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson (Chemistry). It is rumoured that both Professors went to the same Grammar school and had the same teacher, Luke Sutcliffe. With more notable individuals originating from Todmorden, success shines from its valleys.
