Full description

Location
The site is accessed directly from West Lane on the edge of the renowned village of Haworth, with its picturesque cobbled high street and numerous independent shops, pubs and eateries. Haworth is most famous as being home to the Bronte Sisters attracting visitors from all around the world to the iconic parsonage, rolling moors and the ruins of Top Withins Farmhouse. The vibrant town of Keighley is about 3.5 miles to the north east which offers a full range of services and amenities including direct rail links to both Bradford and Leeds. Access by road is excellent with the A629 providing a short commute to Halifax.

Description
This substantial range of stone buildings has been used up until recently by the Methodist Church as a place of worship and community space with the site including a useful car park and graveyards bordering open countryside.

Planning
Full planning permission for the conversion of the buildings to form five new dwellings with outside space and private parking based on a sympathetic scheme prepared by the planning and development team at David Hill LLP was granted by Bradford Metropolitan District Council on the 26th October 2021. Application No.: 21/04518/FUL.
