The closest mainline station
Haworth is the historic small local town within walking distance to Ponden. Its greatest claim is being the home of the Bronte family, with the parsonage museum, and many other sites that are as described in their writings. However even without the Bronte fame Haworth is a stunning and picturesque town in its own right (www.haworth-village.org.uk).
With restaurants, pubs and shops there is plenty to look at and it might sound a bit morbid but the graveyard is awesome. The graveyard and village have been used as a film set many times, probably the most famous was The Railway Children in the 70s.
You cant really have the Railway Children without having a railway and the Keighley Worth Valley Railway runs a regular Steam Train service through Haworth to Keighley (www.kwvr.co.uk). Entirely run by volunteers the railway is one of the foremost historic steam railways in Britain.
