Incredible Edible Todmorden

Todmorden lies 17miles north-east of Manchester, at the convergence of the  three Pennine valleys that forms part of the ancient border between Yorkshire and Lancashire.

Centuries before industry arrived in Todmorden, the local population lived in self-sustaining, agriculture settlements on the hill-tops, the industry revolution came and went.

Recently a group of activists, dismayed with what they perceive as a troubled world, have been going back to basics.

About three years ago they decided to invent something that would perhaps make their town better, perhaps make more people more aware of the importance of the environment, but do it by talking about local food, because everybody has got to eat and it seems a simple message, that might just unite the people.
