Esholt Things to Do
Exploring the Village
I spent nearly a couple of hours exploring Esholt. I got off at the Esholt Cricket/Rugby Club and walked up Esholt Lane to the village. It's mainly rural with allotments and residents' homes. I visited the village shop and post office to post some letters and had a look round the Main Street including The Woolpack Pub.
I went past the Village Hall and then a thoroughfare to the back of St Paul's church where I saw the graveyard. I reached the front of church and had a wander inside. After the church, I explored surroundings that relate to Esholt's pass and had a picnic at The Village Green.
I finally 'retired' the The Woolpack Inn for a drink before getting the bus back to Bradford.Related to:

Exploring the Village (Part B)
Please see Exploring The Village tip about what I got up to during my visit to Esholt.
I think two hours is sufficient to look around Esholt village. If you're planning to visit the Farm Park on Station Road as well you probably need to add more time.
If you're travelling by car to Esholt, you're best parking on Station Road because the street parking in the village are only reserved for the residents.Related to:
