Upper Hopton

Upper Hopton is a semi-rural village nestling in the foothills of the Pennines. It is 600ft above sea level and occupies an enviable position between Dewsbury and Huddersfield.

Further information can be found at

More information on the church and Hopton Hall can be found at the nearby Church Micro cache by Flash & Grubby


Upper Hopton Telephone Box

One of Upper Hoptons quaintest features is its decommisioned telephone box at the main cache page coordinates which the local community has adopted and spruced up, and which they decorate at different times of the year to celebrate the seasons, festivities or local events - at the time of writing it was decked out  to celebrate Hopton in Bloom's Gold award at the Yorkshire in Blooms awards in 2017

Further images of the letterbox decked out in different themes can be seen at
