Hebden Bridge is top of the shops

Award winning Hebden Bridge

Almost a year on from the Boxing Day floods, residents and businesses in Hebden Bridge are celebrating it being named the best small market town in Britain.

Record rainfall last December devastated the Calder Valley with almost 4,000 homes and businesses badly damaged by the floods.

Plenty to celebrate in Hebden Bridge

But there is now plenty to celebrate after the town won the Great British High Street Award, earning a share of a £100,000 prize and expert advice to boost the town's profile. Pateley Bridge won Village of the Year at the ceremony in London.
