General Notes

The Mixenden area of Calderdale lies to the north-west of Halifax.

The district made the national headlines in January 2003, when Adrian Marsden was elected as a British National Party Councillor – the first in Yorkshire – in a by-election.

The name had been written as Maxenden and Myxindale, and is derived from the elements mixen and den, meaning a dung-hill valley.

Pronunciation: The stress falls on the first syllable, and both remaining vowels have the neutral schwa vowel: mix-ən-dən.
