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.

Visited Heptonstall just to visit Sylvia Plath's grave, but spent the day here and absolutely fell in love with the place! Grabbed lunch (sandwich, tea and cake) in the church, served by the lovely women volunteering in there. Was lovely to hear their stories, and they are obviously very proud of the graveyard's famous residents. Stunning location, with breathtaking views... More

We went to Heptonstall to visit the grave of Sylvia Plath, we had no idea the area was so beautiful. We had a lovely walk around the quaint cobbled streets and the many footpaths. It was like stepping back in time

What's not to like about Heptonstall? I'll tell you: nothing! The village, though built on steep and sturdy lines, is worth the climb. With cobbled setts on the road in the older part of the village, dirt tracks, hidden alleyways and ginnels for exploration, around every corner is something new and pleasing to the eye. The history of the village... More

The two churches are well worth seeing. The village is on a hill and has a nice little cafe and a pub. The poet Sylvia Plath is also buried on the left side of the new cemetery.
