David Brown Tractor Museum

The museum is run by the David Brown Tractor Club volunteers. There are 15 to 18 tractors in the Museum at any one time but the exhibits can be rather fluid according to when owners require or sell their tractors. The David Brown Test Track is a ten minute walk away

Robert Ashton Memorial Park

There are two enclosed play areas to enjoy. One for younger children with a variety of play equipment and a larger one for slightly older children with larger swings and climbing apparatus

Take a stroll around the little pond and see the ducks or have a walk through the formal gardens and explore the various paths.  There are also football pitches to enjoy. The park is full of open spaces to play in or to picnic! Or how about a game of tennis on one of the two tennis courts? 

Dogs are very welcome in the park but please make sure you pick up anything they may leave behind and put it in one of the bins provided

There are toilets and free parking available onsite. Alternatively, the park is within walking distance of Meltham Village

Also known as the "People's Pleasure Grounds", the Pleasure Grounds in Meltham are a scenic wooded park laid out by landscape gardener Joshua Major in 1858 on land owned by Charles Brook. The grounds lie between Mill Bank Road and Acre Lane, following the route of Thick Hollins Dyke (which eventually becomes the Mag Brook)


CHURCHES

St Bartholomew C Of E Church

The Church is situated in the centre of Meltham and was consecrated on St. Bartholomew’s day 1651 by Bishop Henry Tilson, a former Bishop of Elphin in Ireland. The church is believed to be one of a very few in England to be consecrated during the Commonwealth period

The only relics remaining from that time include: The desk of the original pulpit bearing the inscription ‘1651 Cathedra Veritas’, a lintel stone on which is carved the date '1651' and an architrave surrounding the door into the choir vestry

The nave of the present Church was built in 1786 and in 1835 the Tower, North transept and Gallery were added with the bells being installed a year later. The building was completed when the Chancel was added in 1876 and at the same time the original ‘box’ pews were removed

Peter is the Tower Captain at St. Bartholomew's.  There are 6 bells that they ring every Sunday from 9am to call everyone in for the 9.30am service. The bell ringers practice every Thursday night from 7pm until 8pm and then usually retire to the Liberal Club to put the world to rights
