From its early days as the school Sarah Fielden opened for children, through its important life as an art school after it was gifted to the town by her son, then as a remedial school and overflow classes after the second world war and finally, following heroic work by local volunteers who brought it back from dereliction, becoming the community facility it is today - this beautiful building has played an important part in Todmorden life.
