A wonderful little hidden gem! A place to keep returning to at different times of the year! it's pretty cold up on that exposed hillside in the winter time though, so wrap up warm!!! We were glad that the nice little café was open on a Sunday (10am)! We managed to locate David Hartley's gravestone in the old church yard.... More

A beautiful little village nestled in the hills above Hebden Bridge. Heptonstall is a wonderful historic village that boasts two churches in one yard. The museum (that opens on weekends/bank holidays) is very informative and tells you so much about such a small place. It makes for pleasant walks and has two nice pubs for visitors to relax and unwind.

Was taken to Heptonstall by a lovely new friend today, what a trip back in time. The steep cobbled streets, the tiny cottages, the church and graves all seemed as though they haven't changed over the years gone by. Even though it's a wonderful place to visit, the lack of shops and cafés made it feel far more authentic as... More

we stayed here as couldn't find anywhere in hebden bridge. it's on the top of a very steep hill from HB but it does have great character. the tearoom offers great food, there are a couple of nice pubs and the churches are worth a wander round, though we couldn't find sylvia plath's grave. walking distance to hardcastle crags.

This a place I go back to again and again. There's not a huge amount to see: the main attractions are the setting and the atmosphere. The ruined church next door to the new church is unique as is the octagonal chapel. Sylvia Plath's grave is in the new graveyard. The museum is interesting, but a wander around the streets... More

Incredible views and a great place to begin many hilltop walks. Two churches (one ruined) in the same graveyard. An octagonal chapel, Cobbled street, a dungeon, good beer and old cottages.
