‘Home of the Badger’ – Brockholes lies in the middle of the Holme valley. The station is accessible from Ridings Fields. The river Holme flows through the village on its way to the Humber, passing close to the road at points, such as the old hump-backed bridge at Smithy Place. Climbing Brockholes Lane we come to the village hall, formerly the village day school. The hall is now administered by the Brockholes Village Trust. Beyond the village hall, a further short climb leads to the lovely church of St George, built-in 1863, from where there is a pleasant view of the village centre. Enjoy a drink at The Rock Inn or The Travellers Rest both on New Mill Road.
