General Notes

Ripponden is a district of Calderdale west of Sowerby Bridge.

The A58 divides here into the main branch going on to Littleborough and Rochdale, and the A672 which goes on to Oldham.

The name is said to mean valley with a ford over the brook but Ryburn valley seems more apt, especially since an early form of the name was recorded as Ribourndene.

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