DetailsCoiners’ Barn is a piece of history. Bell House (adjacent to the barn) was home to ‘King’ David Hartley, leader of the notorious Cragg Vale Coiners during the late 18th century. Eventually hanged at Tyburn, near York in 1770 Hartley coordinated an elaborate operation of coin clipping in remote hilltop farms across the local area. The edges of coins were clipped and then melted down before being stamped as ‘new' coins. These coins were put back into circulation by unscrupulous local publicans, The effect was almost disastrous for the English economy – and forced a local Excise Officer – William Deighton to investigate. Deighton was murdered in Halifax on 8th November 1769. The subsequent betrayal within the coining gang led to their various downfalls and King David’s demise.
Coiners' Barn is right in the middle of the Calderdale Way and Pennine Way. With both these walking links on our doorstep we are a perfect spot to stop over for a night or make us a base for visiting the local area.
Walkers are invited to explore Broadhead Clough Nature reserve, at the bottom of the field in front of Coiners' Barn, or visit Stoodley Pike - the monument built to mark the end of the Crimean War (1856) which is less than 2 miles away.
Perhaps you are indeed walking the Pennine Way (Britain's first National Trail, opened in 1965) and wish to stop off at Coiners' Barn to rest the night. We also have great maps from Coiners' Barn around Cragg Vale, taking in many of the Coiners' haunts and our own Medieval Spa.
Only an hour's walk away and you can reach Hebden Bridge or Hardcastle Craggs.
