Fielden Wharf
Fielden Wharf
In 2000 the area around Fielden Wharf was dominated by a disused restaurant. Todmorden Pride, a local voluntary group, lobbied support to get rid of the old restaurant building and create a public open space which would improve the town's attractiveness to visitors. An artist was brought in through the Arts Council to work with local schools in designing decorative panels and sculptures along the wharf, and a local craftsman was asked to produce them. Fielden Wharf is maintained by Calderdale Council, and the sanitary facilities are maintained by British Waterways. A local community group, Todmorden in Bloom, contributes to the maintenance of the planter boxes, landscaped areas and decorative steel sculptures.
