General Notes

Mytholmroyd is a Calderdale town lying to the east of Hebden Bridge.

It lies in 3 townships: Sowerby, Erringden and Wadsworth.

Primarily a river crossing – mentioned in 1577 – the town grew in importance when the turnpike, the Rochdale Canal, and the railway brought industry to the district.

The name is recorded as Mithomrode [1286-1323], Mythumrode [1309], Mythom[e]royd[e] [1478], Mithamroyd [1594], Mytholmroyd[e] [1622], Mithamroyd [1684], and Mitholm-royd [1895].

The name of the area is said to have been taken from Mytholmroyd Farm. The word derives from mytholm and royd and means the clearing at the junction of two rivers – Cragg Brook and the Calder – which was likely to flood.

In the early 19th century, the town fell within Hebden Bridge, Midgley, Sowerby, and Wadsworth. In 1891, Mytholmroyd became independent. In 1937, it merged with Hebden Bridge to form the new Hebden Royd Urban District Council.

Pronunciation: The stress falls on the first syllable, the th is voiced, and the second syllable has the neutral schwa vowel: my-ðəm-royd

The name is frequently mispronounced, notably by Daniel Craig in his rôle of Ted Hughes in the film Sylvia
