An iconic Calderdale building has received £45,000 from a heritage fund to enable repair work to be carried out at the listed landmark.

The grant will help towards an ongoing conservation project at Todmorden Town Hall, with money being spent on repairing the building’s tympanum statues and replacing cracked glazing in the windows.

The money has been awarded by WREN, a not-for-profit company which is part of a national heritage fund that protects buildings of historical importance across the UK.

Peter Cox, managing director of WREN, said: “We’re delighted to support the restoration of Todmorden Town Hall and look forward to seeing the project progress.”

Calderdale Council cabinet member Barry Collins said: “We’d like to thank WREN for the funding, which will contribute significantly to reinvigorating this striking building.”
