Malcolm Bull's Calderdale Companion : Foldout



General Notes

Luddenden is a district of Calderdale west of Halifax on the river Ludd. The village lies partly in the townships of Midgley and Warley.

The name uses the elements Ludd, ing and dene, and means clearing in the Ludd valley, or valley of the loud stream and refers to the Luddenden Brook.

The spellings Ludingdene, Luddington and Luddyngden are found.

The community is first mentioned in 1284.

In 1375, a corn mill was moved from Warley to exploit the Luddenden Brook. With the introduction of water power, many textile mills were established in the district.

The place is mentioned in the Weavers' Rhyme

Pronunciation: The stress falls on the first syllable, and both the remaining syllables have the neutral schwa vowel: lud-ən-dən
