Parish Church of Saint Thomas à Becket, Heptonstall by 

In the ancient hilltop weaving village of Heptonstall, overlooking Hebden Bridge, stand two churches, both in the same churchyard, one in ruins and the other one still very much in use. There are only a handful of Churches in England that can boast of having two churches built in the same grounds, and one of them is Westminster Abbey. It would seem that Heptonstall is in good company and indeed, has the advantage of a far pleasanter outlook than that of Westminster Abbey.
