Hebden Bridge Times: Replica Fustian Cutting Knife

A giant replica of a fustian cutting knife is a step closer to being built in Hebden Bridge after plans were approved by the Town Council.

Hebden Royd councillors recommended approval of proposals for a "central paving feature" in St George's Square, which would be part of the town's traffic review and pedestrianisation scheme…

Its polished stainless steel blunt tip would point directly north towards Nutclough Mill, former home of Hebden Bridge Fustian Manufacturing Society Ltd.

The feature will replace 12 parking spaces in the parking-space-starved Pennine tourism hot-spot.
