The Picture House

The Little Theatre
HEBDEN BRIDGE LITTLE THEATRE was formed in 1924 and has been producing plays almost continuously ever since, in places as various as the Co-operative Hall, the Picture House, the Band Rooms on the park, and for a prolonged period (1937 -1977) in the Ground Floor of the Trades Club.
The theatre has a delightfully intimate atmosphere, and the bar and waterside patio make a visit to the Little Theatre a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Alternative Technology Centre
The Alternative Technology Centre (ATC) is a not-for-profit organisation established in 1999 on the banks of the Rochdale Canal in Hebden Bridge. As an educational resource centre, we aim to make sustainability achievable and simply irresistible by working from a strong base within our local community to provide inspiration, accessible information and advice to improve the quality of life using sustainable means – economic, environmental and social.
In the centre of this charming village lies Heptonstall Museum, situated in the Old Grammar School Building. Heptonstall Grammar School was established in 1642 - the present building was rebuilt in 1771, where it continued to be used as a school until 1889.
In 1898 it became the Yorkshire Penny Bank whose staff were careful to preserve some of the original features of the school: including a black oak desk at which pupils took their lessons which can still be found inside the Museum today.
If you take a visit to Heptonstall Museum you will also discover the interior of a weaver’s cottage and displays of other local industries such as clog making. The museum also illustrates the domestic life of the villagers, with objects such as lump head irons and havercake boards alongside photographs of the local football team at the turn of the century and visits made to the local leisure site - Hardcastle Crags.
Heptonstall Museum is the ideal starting point for exploring this intimate and charming village.
