An attractive Pennine village at head of the valley, Marsden was originally a mill village. The Huddersfield Narrow Canal runs through the village. There are several pubs, cafes, restaurants and take-aways. Modern Marsden grew as a focal point of routes crossing the Pennines. Pack horse trails, turnpike roads, canal and railway have all left their mark and you can trace the impact of the industrial revolution both on the ground and on social history, notably the Luddite and Chartist movements. Sherpa Van recommends staying here overnight prior to walking Stage 2 of the route from Standedge to Hebden Bridge.
Established in 1787, The New Inn offers a warm welcome. We serve a range of cask ales, and real home cooked food. Stay in one of our beautifully renovated ensuite bedrooms.
