 About Stanbury There is a pub here. There is a bus stop here. 
Stanbury is a pleasant village of stone houses, overlooking the Worth Valley as it slips down from the higher Pennines through picturesque woodland. This is Bronte Country, with Top Withens close by, believed to have been the source of Emily's Wuthering Heights. Ponden Hall might have been Thrushcross Grange. Stanbury' St Gabriel's is a low stone church. The 19th century Methodist Chapel is a private house, and the old Co-op is a corner cottage on the village street
