Todmorden is a market town and civil parish in the Upper Calder Valley in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, England. It is 17 miles from Manchester and in 2001 had a population of 14,941.Todmorden is at the confluence of three steep-sided Pennine valleys and is surrounded by moorlands with outcrops of sandblasted gritstone.The historic boundary between Yorkshire and Lancashire is the River Calder and its tributary, the Walsden Water which run through the town. The administrative border was altered by the Local Government Act 1888 placing the whole of the town within the West Riding.The town is served by Todmorden and Walsden railway stations.HistoryToponymyThe name Todmorden first appears in 1641. The town had earlier been called Tottemerden, Totmardene, Totmereden or Totmerden. The generally accepted meaning of the name is Totta's boundary-valley, probably a reference to the valley running north-west from the town. Alternative suggestions have been proposed, such as the speculation "maybe fancifully" that the name derives from two words for death: tod and mor (as in mort), meaning "death-death-wood", or that the name meant "marshy home of the fox", from the Old English.
