Heptonstall and Ted Hughes


Remains of Elmet - high res

The ancient village of Heptonstall with its ruined 13th century chapel was a potent source of inspiration for local poet Ted Hughes. His book Remains of Elmet features an iconic photograph of Heptonstall on its cover – the same view as Elmet Farmhouse. The American poet Sylvia Plath (Hughes’s first wife) is buried in Heptonstall churchyard. 


Dales on the Doorstep


The hills and dales around Hebden Bridge offer a walker’s paradise with dramatic steep-sided valleys, rivers, waterfalls, bluebell woods, hay meadows and heather moors. A haven for birds and wildlife, there are curlews and lapwings on the hills and owls and deer in the fields and woods. Click on Barry the Barn Owl for more photos!
