    The Chapel is open to the public between April and September every Tuesday between 2pm-4pm. Light refreshments in the form of a cuppa and biscuits are available for a small donation. On the Tuesdays in June, July and August Yorkshire Cream Teas are also available, with homemade scones baked fresh that day, homemade jam (which is sometimes also available for sale), butter and freshly whipped cream.

    There will be a short service at 2pm on 26th June, 31st July and 28th August.

    Mount Zion has a unique part in the history of Methodism, with John Wesley staying in the cottage (in the room now known as The Prophet's Chamber) adjoining the Chapel, when he was travelling between preaching appointments in the 1700's. Mount Zion is home to the world-renowned Horace Hird Methodist Pottery Collection - come and see the many interesting pieces that comprise our collection.

    Please see our website and Facebook page for details. You can email us at mountzionheritage@gmail.com.

    Parking is limited on Per Lane, so if you visit us by car, please park safely and considerately on the roadside. There is a regular 504 bus service to Denholme from Halifax, that goes along the A629, allowing you to get off at the bus stop at the top of Per Lane. Mount Zion Chapel is only a 200 metre walk along Per Lane from the A629 Keighley Road.

    Preview evening 26th April 2018, 6pm - 9pm Exhibition 27th April to 1st July 2018 An exhibition of new work by Kate Lycett at Heart Gallery in Hebden Bridge. Everyone welcome. Kate Lycett lives in Hebden Bridge and calls this quirky and popular Northern town home now. She is a resident artist at Heart Gallery on Market Street and has exhibited there successfully since 2012 so now has a huge following and collectors of her original paintings and hand finished prints. Her textile design background is always present in the way that she paints, and interprets what is around her. She sees patterns in everything; the hills adorned with houses and washing lines, rows of flower pots and stripes of brightly painted drain pipes. Lines of gold thread trace the lines through the landscape, and gold leaf changes the surface of her pictures with the changing light of day. She wants to paint beautiful pictures of the places that she loves; and what’s not to love about Hebden Bridge and the surrounding hills she now escapes to with her running buddies to find a bit of ‘me’ time? Craggs & Fells exhibition at Heart Gallery has been inspired by Kate’s love of the countryside around Hebden Bridge and her hours spent fell running in all weathers over the last few years. “In a busy house where everyone likes to talk at once, I sometimes run just to be still. Through the bogs and bracken, in the sunshine and the snow, I’ll play out on the hills. Within a few minutes a hill will turn from black to gold, and then disappear altogether behind an on-coming squall.” From Hell Hole Rocks down to Mytholm Steeps, Swillington Farm to Stoodley Pike and Gibson Mill to Shackleton Knoll, Kate’s got it covered so prepare yourself for a fabulous journey around Hebden Bridge through the seasons that we love so much and make our valley one of the most beautiful in Yorkshire

    Calderdale is delighted to host the Tour de Yorkshire 2018. The success of this event has meant that the race has been extended to a four day spectacle from 3rd May – 6th May, which promises to secure even more interest from professional cyclists across the globe. Halifax and in particular the Piece Hall will celebrate the start of the fourth day of racing!

    Stage 1 starts on Thursday 3rd May. This ‘Arts & Culture’ stage starts in Beverley and finishes in Doncaster. A largely flat stage, the 179 kilometres of route will start with the women’s race in the morning, followed by the men in the afternoon.

    Stage 2 from Barnsley to Ilkley, named ‘’Yorkshire Heritage’, will have an exciting summit finish and for the first time, the ladies will compete for a second day, followed by the men.

    Stage 3 on 5th May is aptly named ‘Market Towns’ and starts in the stunning market square of Richmond, finishing after 181 kilometres in the coastal town of Scarborough.

    Stage 4 is summed up in two words; ‘Yorkshire Terrier’. On Sunday 6th May the race finale starts at the beautifully renovated Piece Hall in Halifax. This beast of a race, which includes nearly 3,500 metres of climbing, circles the town, then travels out through Saville Park, down through Luddendenfoot and Mytholmroyd before ascending the first of six King of the Mountains climbs - Cote de Hebden Bridge. Cyclists ascend Keighley Road en route to Oxenhope. The race culminates in Leeds for what will be an amazing finish to a spectacular four day event.

    Details about timings and road closures will become available in the coming months.
