Not only have our apartments at The Bridge been created from the careful conversion of a mill dating back to the 1700s, they’re located in historic Haworth, which has a rich heritage of its own.
Famed as the birthplace of the Brontës, who lived and worked at what is now the Grade I listed Brontë Parsonage Museum on Church Street, the rugged, romantic landscape surrounding this charming hill village inspired masterpieces of English literature including Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.
Within Haworth’s conservation area and along its steep cobbled streets are several churches and chapels, including the church where the Brontës’ father once served as curate, along with weavers’ cottages, workshops and mills that, with Bridgehouse Mill (the building we’re converting and conserving to create the apartments at The Bridge), act as a reminder of the region’s industrial heritage.
The Bridge Apartments are adjacent to (and several enjoy views of) Bridgehouse Beck and the Keighley and Worth Valley Steam Railway, which famously appeared in the iconic 1970 film, The Railway Children. The railway first opened in 1867 and was predominantly funded by wealthy local mill owners: the owner of Bridgehouse Mill would quite possibly have been amongst them! Nowadays the railway is run almost entirely by volunteers, and Haworth station is one of six stops along its five-mile line, which sweeps through the Pennine valleys. This picturesque landscape is right on The Bridge’s doorstep and easy to explore, with many walking routes accessible from the rear of development.
