Hebden Bridge won in the Small Market Town Category, The Great British High Street of the year award 2016.
Hebden Bridge fought off some fierce competition from Chipping Norton and Thame. The 2015 floods clearly have not dampened the resilience, determination and passion for the Market Town and the bounce back of the high street to 95% occupancy really stood out. After receiving a record-breaking 40,000 votes, Hebden Bridge also received the special ‘People’s Choice’ Award for the most votes ever cast for one place in the history of the competition.
