Excerpt from A Short History of Todmorden: With Some Account of the Geology and Natural History of the Neighbourhood

The town fills the central space and extends for more than two miles along each of the valleys. From the uplands may be observed the large number of mill chimneys and the dull grey of the housetops. The great railway viaduct and embankment join two of the valleys and block the entrance to the third, whilst above the mills and houses a few church Spires are visible. Though Todmorden has little in itself that is picturesque, it is most picturesquely situated among the folds of the hills. On a moonlight night from one of the hill slopes, instead of streets and houses, a valley of stars may be discerned, where gleaming points of light mark out the railway and the streets that mount the uplands, or indicate the more distant windings of the valleys.
