Running through the heart of Brontë Country and across rolling hillsides to scenic Hebden Bridge, The Keighley Bus Company’s Brontëbus B3 is the third entry on our list for #AYearOfBuses.
The countryside south of Keighley out towards Haworth, Oxenhope and Hebden Bridge is simply spectacular – and with the first half of the B3 running parallel to the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, there’s plenty of opportunities to hop between scenic bus and a steam train along the way.
With its narrow, steep Main Street, Haworth is charming and known the world over for the Brontë sisters – Charlotte, Emily and Anne – who wrote most of their famous works while living at Haworth Parsonage, now a museum along the route of the B3, owned by the Brontë Society. And at the western end of the route, the former textile town of Hebden Bridge boasts a stunningly well-preserved rail station, featuring authentic signage in the original Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway style.
