Victoria Meadows

Ripponden, West Yorkshire

Victoria Meadows

24 Houses

4-5 Bedroom Properties

River Views


Our love affair with Yorkshire continues with our latest  exclusive development in Rippondale. Victoria Meadows, off Halifax Road,  will be our third project in this stunning village and consist of 24, three and four bedroom properties, some with stunning views over the River Ryburn.

The three-story  houses, built to the side of the former  Victoria Mill,  also look out onto woodland , but are only minutes from the village centre with restaurants, pubs, shops , a supermarket, church, school, doctor’s surgery , dentist, park,  hairdressers and barbers and beauty salons  on the doorstep.

Redwaters director, Sean McCaul , believes there will be plenty of interest in Victoria Meadows.  “It’s all about location, location, location and  this one has everything going for it.   A country setting with fabulous views but within walking distance of so many amenities.    House prices in the borough of Calderdale, which takes in RIpponden , have been climbing steadily over recent years which make these houses a great investment. “

Why choose Ripponden? Well for starters it is well connected.  You have easy access to the M62 motorway, and both Manchester and Leeds can be reached in around 30 minutes.  The nearest train station is less than two miles away in Sowerby Bridge and this has speedy links to both cities. 

It has impressive junior and senior schools – Rishworth Private School is just down the road –  and great sporting facilities including a bowling club, tennis courts, cricket and football clubs, gyms, and an abundance of country and riverside walks. Cyclists love the area as well.

Ripponden itself is stepped in history. It is on a main former packhorse route from Halifax over the Pennines into Lancashire, and has its own conservation area which includes the Church of St Bartholomew, the Old Bridge Inn and a packhorse bridge over the River Ryburn. 

A Good Investment

The conservation village of Ripponden is part of the Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale. The borough has recently seen house prices shoot up, mainly down to two things. Firstly, Halifax’s piece de resistance the restored Piece Hall, a vast Georgian cloth hall which has recently undergone a £19m transformation.

The award-winning Piece Hall has been featured in national papers and on prime time TV, and attracts visitors from all over the world. Many fall in love with what has been called the Vienna of Yorkshire or the Covent Garden of the North, and decide to set up home in the area.

Others visit, or move to the borough, because of the area’s dramatic valleys, cobbled towns and historical landmarks which have featured in their favourite TV programmes. Calderdale is known as the Hollywood of the north and is in demand as a prime filming location.

It has been put on the map by writer and director Sally Wainwright, the brains behind popular TV series such as Gentleman Jack, Last Tango in Halifax and Happy Valley. Ms Wainwright who was raised in Sowerby Bridge (which is five minutes from Ripponden) says there is a real depth to the landscape and it is so dramatic and awe-inspiring.

The BBC drama series Gentleman Jack used historic landmarks like the Piece Hall and Shibden Hall, and more than five million people tuned in, making it the most successful programme launch for the BBC last year. It has also had a big impact in America where it was also shown.

It’s not unusual for residents to see a film crew or famous faces at work in the district, and this has been a huge boost to the local economy. Tourism is now worth £344m a year in Calderdale.
