Keighley to Hebden Bridge via Haworth, Keighley & Worth Valley railway & Oxenhope

What better way to see the landscape which inspired Charlotte, Emily and Anne than from the back seat of Brontë Bus? Sit back and enjoy panoramic views of these windswept lands of heather and moors.

Places to visit & things to do along the way

Set amidst the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, Keighley is a pretty town, nestled between the charming countryside of Airedale and the Haworth Moorland. The town is a terminus of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, a heritage steam line which has been lovingly restored.

Keighley is a good base from which to explore the surrounding hills, moors and valleys. The town is also a thriving commercial and retail centre.

 

The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway is a preserved standard gauge line which joins the national railway network at Keighley and runs 5-miles up the valleys of the River Worth and Bridgehouse Beck to Oxenhope.

The Railway has played host to many film crews the most notable in recent years has been the World War 1 drama, Testament of Youth and the children’s classis, Swallows & Amazons.

Every October the Railway also holds one of the north’s best Beer & Music Festivals. Add to this dining trains on selected dates, including services for Afternoon Tea, Cream Teas, Fish & Chips and Curry trains and the Railway offers something for all the family throughout the year.

Haworth

Home of the famous Brontë sisters, Haworth is an undisputed literary mecca, attracting visitors from all around the world. With its historic cobbled Main Street, iconic parsonage and rolling moors, the picturesque proportions of this Airedale village exude a vintage charm that makes you feel you’ve stepped into another era.

Landscape, with fields, meadows, hills and valleys near, Oxenhope

Oxenhope is a small village close to Haworth, once home to the Brontes. It is the terminus for the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway a steam railway that stops in Haworth, Oakworth, Damems, Ingrow (West) and terminates in Keighley.

The village is also well-known for the The Oxenhope Straw Race, a team event in which competitors complete a 2.5 mile course around the village carrying a bale of straw and stopping at each pub on the route for a pint of beer. Many contestants choose to dress up in costumes. The event benefits local charities and always draws many spectators.

Wander the creative, bohemian streets of Hebden Bridge, and you can feel the influence of the writers and artists who flocked to the town around the 70s and 80s.

From artisan shops and inspiring galleries to organic pavement cafés and charming picture houses, the town is justifiably proud of its artistic identity. Just a few minutes away you will find pretty wooded valleys and picturesque heather moorland.

It takes you through the most beautiful scenery, picture perfect views. I first experienced it on a lovely summer’s day. I m going again today to see it on a lovely autumn day. I love it!!
