Hi Oxenhope. I am trying to trace an old friend Ian Eglan. He lived with his wife in a small farm house above the village. His son and grandchildren are desperately trying to get in touch with him. I have not seen them for 20 years. They would be in their 50/60s, I think his wife was a school teacher with 3 children from an earlier marriage. They were both keen runners / orienteering. If anyone might know them please ask them to get in touch, many thanks ...
Hello, Sorry to bother you, I was wondering if anyone anywhere there knew of an Ian Eglan? If anyone does, could he please be passed our details, as his son Peter is desperate to meet him. Peter was born 1985 to Linda Yarker/Carling. It is particularly important to Peter now as he wants his father to meet his four grandchildren. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance Claire and Peter ...

Any B&B or holiday cottage people able to accommodate 2 adults and a dog this evening for a couple of nights? I am an estate agent and we may need to rehouse some tenants temporarily whilst the boiler is repaired. Thank you ...
Actually Mr Fisher I own the Peugeot and it’s not actually parked like that on purpose - I had to abandon it as it was so icy and slippery I couldn’t move it as it was stuck thank u very much. Maybe if u have a problem with my parking u should come and speak to me directly instead of putting an unnecessary photo and comment on Facebook - not a very neighbourly thing to do. I would willingly have handed u my keys and seen if u could have moved it!!!!
Look at the state of the road. Nothing should be coming down Best Lane never mind the bus. The only thing that should come down is the gritter.
I managed to park my car obstruction free
That's what fb is for posting things on pic comments etc so if Mr Fisher dsnt know who you are or where you live how is he supposed t come & speak to you about it!!!! Dnt do it then it wnt get posted...

SNOW UPDATES: (we will update this post as more information comes in - if you are travelling this morning, please let us know how the nearby roads are).
Please like, share or comment this post to make it more visable.
SCHOOLS: North Halifax Grammar: Open We have had no word from Oxenhope. Previous advice has been to assume it is open.
ROADS: Gritter has been through key roads All roads passable though only with extreme care. Farmers gritting road to Hebden. Stanbury Road *very* icy, ok for 4x4 with care Denholme reportedly at a standstill.
BUSSES: Running as normal.
BINS: Bradford Council are attempting today's collections but may be delayed. ...
Owners of 4x4s. Your car is on ordinary Road tyres. Not magic. If you pass my little roller skate a 50+ on an icy Heb Road think how silly you'll feel when I sail past you in a frozen ditch half a mile down the same road.
Still bad in denholme. Taken me over an hour to get to it from Oxenhope going through crossroads. Didn't want to risk long causeway.
Just had an update that the road from Oxenhope to Hebden Bridge is icy until past Peckett Well, but passable. Farmers out gritting.
Left the village at 630 once off a side street the main roads seem to have been gritted well towards crossroads and through denholme browtop road was very icy
Denholme is at a standstill going from Haworth end towards Halifax. Traffic coming through fine the other way....
oxenhope to stanbury is very snowy and icey. I would say 4x4 only at the moment and even then with care.
Denholme is still at a standstill all the way up to Queensbury although roads are clear of snow.
Can't understand why schools close they never ever did when we were kids
School busses are going up/down mytholmes lane but very slowly
oxenhope to hebden is open but snow and ice on the road, just take it steady.
Long causeway is passable just take care and drive to the conditions.
