Heptonstall is well worth a visit. The church is beautiful with the remains of the old one right next to it. The church is very peacefull and gives you time to browse or reflect on life. Outside is another attraction the old school house. A snapshot into a village school from the Oldenburg days. A few homely pubs await you... More

In this spectacular old West Yorkshire village you will be spoiled for history. Like in Hebden Bridge,there are millstone grit hoses and other buildings clinging to the steep hillside. If, like us, you like visiting old churches, you have your fill. The octagonal Wesleyan chapel of 1764 is the oldest Methodist chapel still in continuous use. The Church of England... More

What a beautiful place to visit. I would advise getting the guided walk booklet so you don't miss out on anything. The views are amazing, the locals very friendly and the White Lion Pub is warm friendly and quirky!!

Just enjoyed three days in this delightful neck of Yorkshire. Went to watch a stage of the tour. I found it a friendly place with plenty of decent places to eat and drink in the vicinity and delightful scenery. Will return .

We loved Heptonstall. The buildings are fascinating and the ruined church very evocative. Disappointed that Sylvia Plath's grave was so unkempt. Buy a copy of the "trail through Heptonstall" to get the most out of your visit. The walk up the Buttress and through the wood from Hebden is recommended.

Heptonstall ,a medieval village based on weaving and farming is a charming place on a hill. The church is wonderful and contains the grave of Sylvia Plath. There is also an interesting John Wesley Chapel that is still in use and the views from there are stunning. The village has 2 pubs and a lovely tea room too. Had a... More

If you want to see a Yorkshire weavers village where you can really imagine yourself back 200 years then Heptonstall is the place to visit. It's a real village with two pubs but the historic atmosphere is palpable whatever the weather.

Sylvia Plath's grave was so poignant. The Church is absolutely fascinating. It's like stepping back in time.

This is a great little village to visit, especially for those keen on photography. The ruined church and the cobbled hilly streets make for good photos and backdrops for creative photos. There is a large car park just outside the village, and it's a short walk to the centre of village from there, where you'll find Towngate Tea Rooms -... More
