  • changegate car parl

    Please Please be careful of the CHANGE GATE car park in haworth, its been on tv, spoken about in the house of commons etc....

    they trick you to fall foul of thier " rules" to clamp you - most people that park there get clamped it is a racket - they have people drivng out as you drive in to hand you tickets - they fiddle with the clock - they park thier own cars over so called bay lines....

    its also dangerous rough terrain - they are also really thuggish and scare people, they have done disabled vans - causing a child to have an epilectic fit - the elderly etc etc..they dont care.

    Neither so it seems does the village - no where is there any clear warining or signs on the websites that this place should be avoided.

    From anywhere in the UK you can take a main line train to Keighley with various changes of course. Fast Northern Rail electric trains from Bradford or Leeds ( Skipton bound) take only 20 minutes to reach Keighley and from there you need to take a bus or a Worth Valley steam train.

    Local buses

    Local bus in Haworth

    The only way to reach Haworth when the Worth Valley railway is not operating is via local bus. Most of Haworth's bus services are provided by Keighley and District. Services 663, 664, 665 and 720 all serve Haworth, as does Firstbus service 500 which runs between Todmorden and Keighley (infrequent).
    Service 665, also drops off on Rawdon Road, from where it is just a short walk up into the old village. This does away with the walk from the train station bus stop. On other routes, the best stop to get off at is Sun Street, opposite Weavers' Hill, as this also does away with the steep walk from the station area.
    Visitors using Keighley & District's buses to travel to Keighley from further afield - eg from Leeds, Bradford, Skipton or Ilkley, and onward to Haworth, can take advantage of a "K-day" ticket which gives all day travel on all the company's bus services. This costs £2.50 for all-day travel (£3.50 if purchased before 0930 Mon-Fri).
    A further benefit for bus travellers interested in visiting East Riddlesden Hall, the KWVR, the Bronte Parsonage Museum (Haworth) or the Museum of Rail Travel (Ingrow), should ask the driver for a "Heritage Voucher" which when presented with your valid Keighley & District ticket entitles you to discounted entry (special events excepted).
    Also see the website for services 915, 916, 917 and 918 which all provide circular routes from KWVR stations and offer a good opportunity to see the Haworth moors.

    Travel by Steam Train!

    Haworth Train Station
    1 more image

    The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway operates a steam train service between Oxenhope and Keighley, stopping at Haworth. This operates every weekend (since 1968), and daily during school holidays.

    From Keighley, there are mainline rail connections to Leeds, Bradford, Skipton, Settle, Carlisle and Glasgow

    The service is run entirely by qualified volunteers.

    2008 is the 40th Anniversary of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway (KWVR)
    We enjoyed the return journey as our 'mystery tour' part of the Halifax, Fish Chips and Mushy Peas VT meet organised by Ricky 52.

    From March to October, A Real Ale Buffet Car service operates. We supped our teas, coffees, Hand-pulled draught beers or soft drinks while enjoying the scenery, while the train steamed through the countryside.

    The train stopped at Haworth, but we didn't get time to look around, just take more photos!

    The station, (which is typical of a 1950's period railway station) and shop are open daily, even when the train service isn't running. Revenue from the shop goes towards maintainance and running of the railway. The shop occupies the former waiting room and Ladies Room.

    From the station, a footbridge, crosses the line, and links the station to the bottom end of Haworth - a 10 minute walk then takes you to Haworth Main Street, from where you can walk another few minutes to the Bronte Parsonage Museum.

    As well as the Bronte connection, around this area, many scenes from the 1970 film adaption of Edith Nesbits novel 'The Railway Children' were shot. Oakworth, the next station to Haworth was one of the 'Stars' of the film, and its' platform is where Jenny Agguter (Bobbie) cried the infamous lines - "Daddy!, my Daddy!
    For more information about the film, author and memories of the filming etc
    Click here!

    There are Railway Children Walks, that pass locations such as their house 'Three Chimneys', the tunnel and paperchase locations.

    You can read more and see photos from this journey on my Halifax pages

    Driving to and From Haworth

    by suvanki Updated Sep 20, 2008

    Angiebabe and Poons plan the next route
    3 more images

    Our first destination of our day out was Haworth. We set off from The Wool Merchants hotel in Halifax, which had been an excellent venue for our VT meet (Please see mine and other VTers Halifax Hotels tips).

    Suet driving the lead car, Poons co-driving, LoriPori and Hansi enjoying the views from the back seat.
    Following them, were me driving and Angiebabe navigating and taking photos (then downloading them onto her laptop as we sped along!).

    Haworth is about 30 minutes drive from Halifax (we had a couple of stops on the way) and is well sign posted.

    We parked in the Pay and Display car park near the Parsonage museum. You can reach this directly from the car park, or take the alternative route, which we did, to see a bit of the village first, then walk past the church and school (where Charlotte Bronte taught for a while) to the Parsonage.

    In the car park are clean Portacabin toilets.

    I'm afraid that I don't know the parking rates - Poons generously got the tickets - (I still owe her -ooops!)

    KEIGHLEY &WORTH VALLEY RAILWAY

    Haworth Train Station

    If you're visiting Haworth, why not come in by steam train!!! The KEIGHLEY & WORTH VALLEY RAILWAY stops in Haworth. Outwardly this station is in its original form. The turn of the century footbridge which extends over the line, links the station to the bottom of Haworth Village.
    The locomotive works houses a large part of the steam and diesel fleet and the locomotive preparation area can be seen from the picnic area.
    Our VT group made only a short stop in Haworth, so I'm glad Hans and I got to see more of the village on Monday with VT friends Suet, Poons, Angiebabe and Suvanki.

    Worth Valley Railway

    Keighley station

    The best way to Haworth is the Worth Valley Railway that links in to the national rail system at Keighley. Northern trains from Leeds and Bradford call at Keighley every 20 minutes or so and a short walk over the foot bridge takes you to the Worth Valley platform.
    Trains only run at the weekends and in some school holidays but the ride up the valley to Haworth is a real pleasure. The steam engine pulling the train really has to battle to climb the steep valley.
    I have a full Worth Valley railway photo page on my Haworth page.

    Steam ahead or bus it!

    by Sjalen Updated Jun 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It isn't difficult to get to Haworth. If you want to arrive in style you can summertime and some weekends opt for the steam train from nearby Keighley, run by the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway Association (check times below). Another way to get here is to take a bus from Bradford's bus station which is not bad since Bradford is a bit of a hub and easy to find and the bus fare is extremely cheap. You pass the heritage site Saltaire as well as Keighley on the way if you're still hooked on the steam train idea.
