Our town is famous for its literary connections, LGBTQ community, its many pubs, restaurants, coffee houses, independent shops and cinema, canal and marina, and not forgetting iconic music venue The Trades Club, we could go on but ultimately we hope you are going to come and experience it all for yourselves.

Situated within ten minutes walking distance of Hebden Bridge in a peaceful woodland setting, nestled into the hillside just above the town and part of the historic Birchcliffe Centre.
