The steep wet hills and access to major wool markets meant that Hebden Bridge was ideal for water powered weaving mills and the town developed during the 19th and 20th centuries; at one time Hebden was so well-known for its clothing manufacture that it was known as “Trouser Town”. The wool trade also brought the Rochdale Canal and the Manchester and Leeds Railway.
