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.

The village is fascinating, like stepping back in time. Unspoiled and quiet with no cars allowed. The ruined church was atmospheric and Sylvia Plath's grave was an opportunity for reflection. Friendly local chap who works at the museum was very helpful.

The children were dressed int he... More

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 .
