Discover Ripponden

The village of Ripponden developed where the packhorse routes of Elland and Halifax met and then crossed into Lancashire. Originally there was a ford over the river, followed later by a timber bridge, a stone bridge (1533) and the present day mid-eighteenth century bridge.

Ripponden was host to the 2014 Tour de France as Stage 2 of Yorkshire’s Grand depart passed through on the way from York to Sheffield.
