Hebden Bridge is a market town which forms part of Hebden Royd in West Yorkshire, England. During the Second World War Hebden Bridge was designated a “reception area” and took in evacuees from industrial cities. In the 1970s and 1980s the town saw an influx of artists, writers, photographers, musicians, alternative practitioners, teachers, Green and New Age activists. From artisan shops and inspiring galleries to organic pavement cafés and charming picture houses, the town is justifiably proud of its artistic identity. Just a few minutes away you will find pretty wooded valleys and picturesque heather moorland. Productions that have filmed at Hebden Bridge in recent years include Happy Valley and Ackley Bridge.
