Walsden is now a district of Calderdale south of Todmorden. It was in the parish of Rochdale and a part of Lancashire until the late 19th century.

It was listed as Lancashire in the census of 1891.

In 1???, Walsden was split into 2 parts: Walsden Proper and Inchfield.

The name is first mentioned in 1235, the name uses the element Welsh and means valley of the Welsh or valley of the strangers.

From the late 18th century, there was much cotton production here, together with dyeing and printing cloth. At first, cotton was produced by hand, but many mills – including Hollins Mill – were built from the 1850s.

There was also iron working in the area

On 16th December 1940, several bombs fell on moorland here. There were no casualties – except 2 ducks at the Bird-i-th-Hand.
