The archive is a living collection. Its role is just as much to collect material about what is happening now in Hebden Bridge and the Upper Calder Valley as it is to preserve records of the past. What we collect today will be the records for research by future generations. If anybody would like to suggest, provide or donate material that they think suitable for collection please contact the Archivist.
The Society collects everything published about the Hebden Bridge area that helps inform the history of the area. The Hebden Bridge area includes the townships of Heptonstall, Stansfield, Wadsworth, Erringden, Langfield, Midgley, Warley and Sowerby.
The Society may also acquire other pertinent published material, particularly about Calderdale and West Yorkshire that helps inform the history of the Hebden Bridge area.
