Surprise Yourself with a Visit
There are many good reasons to visit Horbury, all of them are good, some of them you may even find a little surprising.
If you are interested in our heritage or just good shopping in a welcoming, friendly environment, a visit to the small township of Horbury can be a fascinating experience. A stroll around its quiet streets can be rewarding in many ways, be it a visit to the fine John Carr designed church, set atop of the eminence that forms the hub of the town, or perhaps you have come for that peaceful shopping experience with just a hint of a difference from the normal High Street superstores.
Horbury, West Yorkshire is located some two miles west of the historic city of Wakefield, close to the M1 motorway, set upon a hill overlooking the valley of the River Calder.
It consists of a warren of streets gathered around the fine Georgian, neo-classical church. The principal route through the town, anciently meandering up the hill, passing the church, is now located slightly south on the High Street. This links with other connecting streets, together with newer developments of outlying suburban residences that feed, as a dormitory, the greater urban conurbation of West Yorkshire.
