View of Heptonstall

Misty Heptonstall, 23/12/18

On the drive over to parents and parents-in-law for Christmas, a view over to Heptonstall, which rises above Hebden Bridge (being the original village) and has featured on many pictures in the past. Perhaps I have post-processed this one too much but with the continuing grey light, in colour this one looked kind of wan and washed out, the mist being just patches of out-of-focus space. In black and white I prefer it and the church comes out more.

Horses and Heptonstall, 27/3/16

Easter Sunday, and my entry in the Cheesy Chocolate Box cover shot, 2016. The horses know.

Heptonstall churchyard

Heptonstall churchyard, 29/3/14

Heptonstall is the oldest part of Hebden Bridge, built several hundred feet above where the main town now stands. Its cemetery is home to the town’s most well-known deceased resident, Sylvia Plath. This part of the churchyard, located between the 19th century church seen here and its ruined, 15th century predecessor,  is a Gothic playground of tombs that is always good for a photo.

Heptonstall church, Christmas Day

Xmas walk, 25/12/12

Was determined to present a photo that wasn’t ‘festive’ – not that I am anti-Christmas, I just fancied hitting a different theme. This shot was taken during the short walk we did in the early afternoon, a nod to the desire to get some exercise among the eating and drinking, and is altered slightly by the rain in the lens but not spoilt, I think. No White Christmas this year, though we have had some in recent years.

Anyway – a happy Christmas to you all, wherever you are and whatever your weather.

Heptonstall and Stoodley Pike, evening

Friday 14th September 2012, 6.55pm (day 386)

Heptonstall and Stoodley Pike, 14/9/12

Along similar lines to yesterday, in some ways, but still the only really decent photo I took today in an otherwise rather mundane day for pictures. It’s a classic view, and not hard to capture – just head up the A6033 from Hebden Bridge to Pecket Well, towards Haworth, and there it is. The church is in Heptonstall, a village above Hebden Bridge (Sylvia Plath is buried in the churchyard) and there has been a monument on Stoodley Pike for two hundred years. This is the second structure; the first collapsed in 1854. It was originally built to commemorate the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815.
