St Michael and All Angels Church, Hubberholme

#2 of 9 in Historic Sites in Yorkshire Dales National Park
St Michael and All Angels' Church is the Church of England parish church of Haworth, West Yorkshire. The current structure, the third church building on the site, was built between 1879 and 1881 although parts of the original medieval church building, notably the tower, survive from earlier periods.
The church is best known for its historic association with the Brontë sisters whose father Revd. Patrick Brontë served as minister of the parish between 1820 and 1861.
A chapel has existed on the site since 1488, though records held at the Archbishop's office in York command that in 1317 the rector of Bradford and the people of Haworth pay the curate officiating in the chapel. John Wesley was known to have preached in the church many times in the 18th century.
The church was rebuilt in the 18th century in coarse dressed millstone with Westmorland slate on the roof. The tower from this period is still in existence as part of the rebuilding works that took place between 1879 and 1881. This period of rebuilding caused outcry at the time as the church, parsonage and Haworth had become a big attraction due to the notoriety and adoration of the Brontё family, particularly the literature of Anne, Charlotte and Emily.
The church is an active place of Christian worship for the local community within the United Benefice of Haworth and Cross Roads. The church underwent £750,000 worth of much needed repairs to the roof and tower in 2016. This meant that the parishioners shared worship with the Methodist congregation at West Lane in Haworth whilst the renovations were undertaken.
