Mytholmroyd is a village about a mile east of Hebden Bridge and 7 miles west of Halifax.

Mytholmroyd was the birthplace of the late poet laureate Ted Hughes who died in 1998. His first wife, the American poet Sylvia Plath, is buried in the churchyard in nearby Heptonstall.

An annual Dock Pudding Competition is held at Mytholmroyd Community Centre in April each year. Mytholmroyd Gala takes place in August, with the proceeds going to local charities.
