Welcome to Friends of Heptonstall Museum.

We are a Volunteer-led museum reflecting on past and present life in this beautiful hilltop village.

The atmospheric and authentic Grade II-listed building dates back to 1600. Built as a warehouse, it was converted to a grammar school in 1771 and closed in 1889. The Yorkshire Penny Bank occupied it 1898 until 1954. It became a museum in August 1972.

Following reopening in May 2023, our opening exhibition ‘Criminal Coiners: Life and Death in Wild West Yorkshire’, tells the story of the notorious Cragg Vale Coiners. King” David Hartley’s grave lies in spitting distance from the Museum’s doors, amidst the atmospheric graveyard of St Thomas The Apostle.
