This is an unusual and interesting place to find off the beaten track. The nearby museum is free and adds to the visit. The newer replacement church is also next door.

We visited Heptonstall on the way into Hebden Bridge. The ruined church is very pretty and peaceful. There are Commonwealth War Graves in the graveyard and we also (eventually) found Sylvia Plaths grave in the new graveyard (round the far end of the church through...More

Really amazing old church. Love how the ruins have been left. I felt uncomfortable walking on people’s graves, but I guess they don’t mind. Really intrigued me how it looks as though it has just been abandoned and they built a new church right next...More

If you go to Hebden Bridge, you really should go to the surrounding villages as well. The trek up the hill to Heptonstall and Blackshaw Head is well worth the effort and keeps you fit as well.

Visited whilst staying in Hebden Bridge, we travelled up by bus as parking can sometimes be a bit difficult, and it's a steep 1 mile uphill walk using the packhorse route.other reviewers have given full descriptions of the village

Sylvia Plath's grave is not in the most obvious (older part) of the graveyard immediately adjacent to St.Thomas' but in the "newer" part.
