The name Todmorden first appears in 1641 and is generally accepted to mean "Totta's boundary-valley". During the Industrial Revolution the area thrived as the home to the Fielden family, Britain's largest textile producers. Their patronage saw the building of many of Todmorden's greatest landmarks such as the impressive Town Hall, Grade I listed Unitarian Church and Dobroyd Castle.

More recently Todmorden has become famous as the home of Incredible Edible, a community project in which the town's public areas are transformed various sustainability projects - even attracting the interest of Prince Charles!

The town's latest landmark is the Lucky Dog, a curiously lifelike statue found in the ruins of the Fielden mansion in Centre Vale Park. The Lucky Dog was featured on Derren Brown's "The Experiments" programme on Channel 4.
