|Oldham East and Saddleworth|
It has remained a tiny Yorkshire hamlet with little more than a pub, the Royal Oak, a scattering of houses, the parish church, St Thomas, and views over the surrounding farms up to the hills and down to the dale.
The parish church is no longer in regular use, though burials still take place and the graveyard is maintained. The churchyard and graveyard were featured in the film The Parole Officer starring Steve Coogan. Becket Whitehead, folksong collector ("A Beggin' I Will Go", "Gallant Poacher", "Four Loom Weaver", "Mowing Match", "Jim the Carter's Lad"), lived in Heights Lane Cottage and was buried at St Thomas Church in 1966.
