Todmorden Strawbale Hotel

Todmorden Strawbale Hotel (TSbH) was formed in November 2016 as a vehicle for a development on a brownfield site in Todmorden town centre.

Given the use of the site in recent years for community growing and festivals, people stated that they wished the land to continue to be freely accessible for social and community purposes.

TSbH imagined a business owned by the community, for the community, to design, build and operate a strawbale hotel and events centre. There will be opportunities for local people to develop skills in natural building methods; the community will be able to hold events and accommodate visitors in an environmentally responsible way; the visitor economy will develop to the benefit of all; and the building will be an exemplar of innovative and sustainable community action.
