Hebden's Bridge is 500 years old!

Did you know the packhorse bridge (the bridge of Hebden Bridge) is 500 years old this year? That's a lot of years isn't it. It has seen a lot of goings on in it's time! There are all kinds of events taking place around town over the coming months to mark the celebrations like 500 voices where 500 singers will meet around the bridge on the 4th July to sing together and 500 words where you're invited to write, you guessed it, 500 words about the town. There will be re-enactments, exhibitions, food, films and lots more. Have a look at the Hebden Bridge 500 website to find out more....there's even a original Hebden Bridge typeface by graphic designer Mike Barrett, based on the weathered lettering on the three old plaques on the bridge. It's available to download and everything! Very cool.

I have made a lamp with the Hebden Bridge 500 logo on it to mark the occasion and they will be available from Radiance.
