Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

The village of Marsden is at the head of the Colne Valley and developed as a mill town in the days of the industrial revolution. Historic routes across the Pennines passed through Marsden including a Roman road, packhorse trails, early coach roads the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and then the railways. The canal has been restored as a tourist route for holiday boats and trips can be taken into the 3 mile tunnel under the hills. The surrounding hills offer a great variety of walking footpaths and the canal path is a level and easy way to walk to nearby villages. The village itself has a good range of shops as well as cafes, restaurants and pubs. The local town of Huddersfield is a good shopping centre and a large new leisure centre with fun pool etc. and easy to reach by car,train or bus. There is an hourly train service to Manchester, Leeds, then to York, Liverpool and further, London can be reached in just over three hours. We have a large selection of local and regional guide books.

Our home exchange - places to go and things to do while staying in our home

Marsden is well situated allowing easy public transport or road access to many tourist and historic attractions. Manchester has world standard art galleries and museums as well as cultural events and Liverpool is worth a visit with its Maritime museum, the Beatles museum and the ferry over the Mersey. Driving to the north takes you to the beautify Yorkshire Dales scenery while going south to Derbyshire brings more wonderful hill scenery as well as outstanding stately homes to visit, both areas being an easy days drive away.
The city of York with its cathedral, castle and many other attractions is easy to reach and is one of the most visited tourist destinations in England.
