Village Amenities

The moors surrounding the village were famous for jet mining in the 19th century and the spoil from the drift mines can be seen along the sides of Hasty Bank and Cold Moor.  The jet miners who worked in the nearby hills were given the rare distinction of having a public house named after them in the centre of the village.  A well known landmark is the rock formation ‘The Wainstones’, visible on top of Hasty Bank to the south of the village.
