#AYearOfBuses 3: Brontebus B3 Keighley – Haworth – Hebden Bridge

B3

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.
