Wadsworth is a high moorland township north of Hebden Bridge - towards Old Town - and lying between the townships of Heptonstall and Midgley.

The township includes Pecket Well and Crimsworth.

Hebden Water forms much of the boundary between the townships of Heptonstall and Wadsworth.

The name appears in Domesday Book and elsewhere as Waddesworth, Wadesuurde, and Wadeswrde, and uses the element worth meaning wooden enclosure or Wadda's enclosure, where Wadda, Wada, or Wedi was a Saxon name.

It was the largest township in the Halifax district.

In 1524, the tax raised on goods and lands in Wadsworth was greater than that of Halifax or Bradford.
