Historical Details A Brief History The Grade II* Listed Todmorden Hall, built of millstone grit is a striking example of Elizabethan handiwork. Its great spreading front has five vary-sized pinnacle capped gables and at the apex of each there is a carved finial. Its clusters of finely mullioned windows overhanging sills testify to the artistic architecture of another generation. The present edifice is largely built around a more ancient timber home (some medieval timbers are still in evidence). In an undated deed (probably of the 13th century) the owner of Todmorden Hall and lands which later became the manor of Todmorden is given as Thomas de la Dene. The earliest recording of the Hall is in 1294 when John de la Dene, thought to be the grandson of Thomas, granted to Alice, the daughter of William de Radcliffe all of his land and services in Todmorden with the Hall subsequently becoming the manor house of Todmorden.
