A village that is often overlooked for tourists. It’s a place to see if you have time, lovely and charming (though there isn’t much to do).

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

I went to Heptonstall only to visit the grave of Sylvia Plath, which was beautiful, but the entire place was beautiful too. The churchyard, both old and new, were incredible and the old part is full of history. Definitely recommend.

Heptonstall is up a steep hill about a mile fro Hebden Bridge. The walk looks tough but isn’t too bad. The village though is amazing, centred on a cobbled Main Street, winding up between stone cottages with lots of inviting nooks and crannies. Physically it...More

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.
