These mystical ruins are at the heart of Heptonstall, one of the Pennines’ most historic villages. At the centre of the village are the ruins of the Church of St Thomas a' Becket built between 1256 and 1260. Here you will also find the grave of Sylvia Plath, the legendary American poet, novelist, and short-story writer.

Heptonstall is a lovely little village, and provides some great views. Theres a couple of pubs and a local shop, friendly people, just beware the bus if you are driving up the single track cobbled road.
