"Are ye goin' up top?"
The words came from an elderly woman I encountered by the side of the A616 at Jackson Bridge. And yes - I was indeed "going up top" having parked Clint by Holy Trinity Church in Hepworth.
The two adjacent stone villages sit in the valley of a tributary of the River Holme. It was surging north to Holmfirth - famously connected with a long running British comedy series, "The Last of the Summer Wine". To the east of Hepworth, the land rises to a plateau. It's like you are climbing to a different climate - colder, windswept but sunlit. Hence - "Goin' up top".
