Heptonstall is a living museum. The old part of the village is like stepping back in time. Weavers cottages, a piece hall, a 'coiners' grave, an octagonal chapel and much, much more. If you're interested in history, particularly history connected with the West Riding of Yorkshire, Heptonstall is well worth a visit.

Worth an hour of anyone's time if you like history and old churches and gravestones. Great views down across Hebden Bridge too.

Walked through Heptonstall after a long day on pennine way so did not explore fully. However, the cobbled roads and charming character of church and buildings make it a worthwhile visit.

I don't mean that there's an admission fee but the walk up to the village will tax you (at least you can feel you've earned the drink when you arrive). The churches are lovely especially the ruin. The village is so quaint though probably not in winter. Good pubs and a tea shop where you can recover.

Heptonstall is a quaint village located atop a very steep hill out of Hebden Bridge. We walked it, though apparently there is a local bus service. There are great views of HB from the village and also along the path. The village is very old, older than HB itself apparently, and was once a significant centre for weaving. These days... More

Love this amazing village, right up on the moors above Hebden. It's very atmospheric and mysterious. Parking is a bit of a pain, but you can walk up from Hebden - fabulous views on the way, but it's a steep and strenuous climb.
