Bramsche (population 25,000+), twinned with Todmorden, is a small town in Lower Saxony. Just north of Osnabruck, it can be reached in less than 24 hours via the overnight ferry from Hull to Rotterdam.
An old weaving centre with an industrial heritage not dissimilar to Todmorden, Bramsche has pleasant rural surroundings, a beautiful old town featuring half timbered buildings, and a conspicuous bright red telephone box courtesy of the Todmorden Town Twinning Association. Modern industry has developed around the historic centre of the town, and the living standards are comparatively high. Bramsche Square in Todmorden is dedicated to this, our first twin town.
