An all-female order shunned modern life, including electricity and spoke in pseudo-medieval English as they carried out their work.

The Madrian Order originated in Oxford in the 1970s before relocating to Yorkshire.

Centred around a person best known as ‘Marianne Martindale’, who also went under the aliases Catherine Tyrell and Mary Scarlett, the group worshipped a female god.

They believed in a society ran by women and referred to the outside world as “the pit”, which they viewed as miserable and loveless.

Information about the Order’s time in Hebden Bridge is limited but some residents of the Calder Valley town are able to recollect their activities there in the early 80s.
