We should have done our homework before visiting Heptonstall, through which we passed while walking.
Other than the grave of Sylvia Plath, festooned with plastic flowers, there were fascinating 17thC gravestones in the old churchyard, cobbled streets, a couple of pubs (if you are lucky...More
Had a wander round here. An interesting place that time has largely passed by. Stone cottages and narrow streets give the place a certain charm, but it's a bit untidy.
For some reason Sylvia Plath is buried here. Odd for an American who committed suicide...More
Heptonstall is an amazing place, where the locals are incredibly friendly. We visited on the day of Sylvia Plath's birthday, and went looking for her grave which is in the churchyard. The churchyard is fantastic, as it has many old graves and there are two...More
A very interesting old Yorkshire weavers’ village with stone cottages and cobbled streets. A ruined medieval church in an ancient graveyard and another big Victorian church next to it.. poets and villains in the graveyards,
A post office/ shop and cafe on the corner. High...More
Visited here in the springtime and it was such a beautiful place. I’ll never forget the day spent there. The ruined churches in town are pretty amazing. Well worth a visit and look around. And there is a boundary walk if you get an ordnance...More
Is it really possible to do all the above in one day using public transport? How? The logistics seem mind blowing?! The week in June, when my friends are visiting, am also planning Settle to Carlisle, Haworth, Saltaire, Hebden Bridge, York, Durham, Heptonstall and Dales! Wanted to do the Lake District in a day..........but has defeated me! Ideas welcomed!

Assunming you are based in Harrogate as you've posted this on the Harrogate forum - 1) You would catch the 36 bus from the bus station, the one with RIPON as it's destination NOT Leeds. On the way to Ripon the bus passes through the village of Ripley, so you'd alight there. The service is very regular. 2) To get to Knaresborough you would need to catch another bus from the bus station in Harrogate OR catch a train from Harrogate. The bus and train stations are almost next to each other in...More
Taxi to Heptonstall (2 Replies)
Hi, we are going to a gig at the Trade Club tomorrow (Saturday). Will we easily be able to find a taxi to take us back up to Heptonstall after about 10.30?

Thanks Joe. Hoping to get that bus just wanted to check about taxis incase gig finishes later than that. Don't fancy walking up the hill in this wind and rain!
Visiting next week (4 Replies)
Hi, Myself and my partner are visiting Hebden bridge next week. Already planned to visit lovegrows for lunch/afternoon tea (unless anyone can recommened somewhere else?) also going to have a walk along the canal. Can anyone recommend anything else to do/see? Cute book shops? Unique shops etc. Must add that I am 8 months pregnant, is Heptonstall quite a walk away?! Can we drive there? Just want a cute day out, currently on matenity leave and bored! Lol

You can get up to Heptonstall on the bus as well if you like - just a short ride. There is a car park though if you'd rather drive - it is on the right as you enter the village If your other half likes beer then Calan's Micro pub is good and there is an off licence / bar just beyond the central traffic lights in HB on the way towards Todmorden. Also Stubbing Wharf on the canal is a nice place to pop in for a drink You can see there is a theme developing here :-) Have a great time...More
