Visit Otley and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Otley, West Yorkshire. This Wharfedale town lies at the foot of the Chevin, a 900-ft-high hill with a superb view at the end of the path leading from the station. Thomas Chippendale was born here in 1718 but his birthplace has been supplanted by the building bearing a memorial plaque. J. M. W. Turner painted many scenes in the area when he was a guest at nearby Farnley Hall. The town has a maypole, old inns, a rebuilt medieval bridge and a bevy of antique shops. The Museum of the Liberty of Otley, in Queen's Place, has a local history collection. All Saints Parish Church has a Norman north doorway and long chancel windows, while the rest of the building is of 14th and l5th century work. It contains 17 sculptured fragments of four Anglo-Saxon crosses from the 9th to 11th centuries. There is also part of a grave-slab with Viking ornament. The Lyndley and Palmes, Fairfax and Fawkes families are remembered in monuments. The Otley agricultural show each May is claimed to be the oldest of its kind.
Bramhope Chapel, in the grounds of Bramhope Hall South East of Otley, is Puritan, of 1649 date, with box pews grouped around a three-decker pulpit.
