Walk along the cobbled streets of Haworth and you’ll instantly fall in love with its old world charm…
We did just that which is why we bought the site behind Bridge House Mills and planned to develop 2, 3 & 4 bedroom homes and 1 & 2 bedroom apartments, which we began building last year. Here are a few reasons why we love Haworth…..
A lot of work goes into maintaining the station, the locomotives and the line. Steam fans flock here. The route runs along our development and is a lovely sight to see when the trains are running.
The high street
The aforementioned cobbled streets are lined with unique shops and cafes, which make Haworth the thriving village it is. There’s also a small co-operative supermarket for smaller food shops.
The park is a heritage grade II listed park and is overseen by Friends of Haworth Park who take great care of the park and can be enjoyed by all the community, especially on these warm summer days.
Miserable weather? No problem. Take a stroll to Haworth Baptist Church where they play films every Friday. You can take a look at their Facebook page for listings here.
Haworth 1940s weekend
We have long supported the weekend, helping the organisation raise money for charity by lending our site for the parking of cars. This year we’re afraid we won’t be able to do this as it wouldn’t be fair on our homeowners but we are still fans of the 1940s weekend. The event welcomes thousands of people to Haworth every year. There is a real sense of community at this event; it’s not to be missed! For more information click here. It’s held this year on the 19th and 20th May.
Last but not least, the parsonage. If you’re a fan of the Brontes we’d recommend you take a trip around the former home of the Bronte sisters. When the Brontes lived in Haworth it was a crowded, smelly, industrial town. The death rate at that time was as high as Londons! To find out more about the museum please click here.
