Hebden Bridge

West Yorkshire

A view over Hebden Bridge

Hebden Bridge is sometimes dubbed the ‘gay capital of the north’, and is well known for its tolerant and gay-friendly atmosphere. Conveniently situated on good rail links between Manchester and Leeds, it is increasingly popular with all kinds of alternative people and has a growing LGBT+ population.

ECC members and other men living in Hebden Bridge and the Calder Valley met monthly up until the pandemic for a variety of workshops and other activities. We are currently planning to re-launch the group in the autumn of 2023, initially as a heart circle. More information will be posted here in due course, and in the ECC newsletter. For enquiries in the meantime, please contact hebdenbridge [at]
