Green light out on traffic lights coming down hill into the village. ...

Is there any mobile hairdressers in the area. I'm really struggling to find someone who can cut a decent bob. I had it cut in hebden bridge last and it is a bit of a mess.... many thanks ...

Hi all

In the last few minutes we've received three messages asking about the state of the roads.

Does anyone know:
The road from Oxenhope to Hebden Bridge
The road from Stanbury to Colne
The Long Causeway / Leeming
The road to Keighley

Your help is appreciated.
...

Thanks so much everyone, as always. Philip, Emma and others with direct sight of the roads that cause problems, we always welcome reports of how these roads cope in bad weather; it's great to have you as our eyes, as we get so many questions at this time of year.

Cars seem to be moving ok on hebden bridge road above st marys church. The gritter was out mid afternoon up here & just going back into the village. N.b. The road over the Halifax is still closed. Xx

As a (top of) Leeming resident I can say that traffic is travelling along Denholme Road/Long Causeway without any apparent problems

Hebden is fine, Leeming is fine not sure about the Long Causeway. All have patches of snow so care is needed but very drivable.

just driven haworth to sowerby bridge bit slushy and foggy on the tops bit other wise fine will be travelling back in about 2hr so will update again later

We drove back from Littleborough at 6 and it was clear fine if a bit foggy from Hebden Bridge

We came back from colne about 4 today and it was clear

Long causeway/leeming was fine an hour ago!

The road to Keighley is fine.

Leeming fine

station road and route to keighley all fine

got back to Haworth from sowerby about 20 mins ago. top road all clear of snow and slushy but very foggy

Came from colne to Stan bury about 7, all clear, just very wet. May be icy once temp drops.

I am guilty of it too but maybe it would help to actually put times in posts?

There is a burst water main at the top of Marsh Lane towards Haworth. Given the icy conditions this could be very dangerous and is best avoided. Police and Yorkshire Water are aware. ...

Looks like there's some kind of a burst water main at the top of Marsh Lane. Water absolutely pouring down the road towards Haworth. Temperature was minus 3 a few minutes ago so could get very dangerous. ...

Comment on Facebook

Have just called '101' and they said they've had a few calls already. Yorkshire Water have confirmed that it's a burst water main and police are treating it as a priority.

Hi Oxenhope

Like some of the admins, you may have received a notification in your feed today (or recently) that Facebook is changing its algorithm, the thing that decides what posts you see.

From now on, you're going to see the posts that "connect you", meaning that unless your friends or family have liked or shared it, it simply won't appear in your feed initially.

During this snowy period, we've all worked through this page to keep everyone up-to-date and almost all our posts have reached thousands and one reached just under 20k people. This is will now change.

If you want our posts to keep appearing for you and your friends and their community, you will need to like and share all this as much as possible. During the snowy period people have liked, shared, tagged friends and that is what has driven the traffic...so please don't stop when the ice thaws out.

We also understand that in the coming months, Facebook will start surveying people to determine the reliability and value of their pages, to try and root out 'fake news'. This was only announced yesterday, so we're not quite clear how it will appear, but please do complete these if you see them. All three admins work hard to keep this page reliable by being careful what we publish and sometimes asking people to remove content that could cause issue, so we hope we're a reliable page. Please work with us on that.

Thank you, Oxenhope, for working with us. Let's keep this page at the top of the feeds.

I’ve seen some similar posts which tell you that in order to keep seeing posts you need to change your settings, i.e go to Oxenhope Online page and where it says following, click on it and choose “see first” as your default option.

Thanks for being on the ball - the connection with Haworth Village is useful too!

You admins do a cracking job, keeping us all informed and safe, keep up the good work!!

Even as it is now after the last "downgrade" of pages I always remind customers/contacts to visit "Pages Feed" and look through what their favourite pages are posting from time to time. This will be even more important from now on.

As a relative newcomer to the village, I am thankful for all the helpful and interesting information you share throughout the year.

Thanks for your efforts to keep us all up to date with what is happening in the village. Jeep up the good work.

Too valuable to not be able to see this it keeps me moving for work and my horses!

Appreciate all you have posted recently and prior to the adverse weather conditions.

Your page it’s great and the admin do a great job we know how much effort goes in to keeping a page running well done Oxenhope Online

Thanks for your great work guys.

Liked and shared for good measure

Thanks your doing a great job.

Thank you

Thank you for update . See this Philip Barraclough

Morning Oxenhope

UPDATED:

Side roads looks really icy, but we're hearing good things about the main roads.

Perfectly passable heading out over to Hebden Bridge this morning.

Long Causeway passable with care

Ice at Crossroads island

Does anybody know the condition of Long Causeway please?

The Keighley/Hebden road (I still don't understand the naming of this road after nearly 5 years!) Junction at crossroads / Lees lane is particularly treacherous this morning. Be careful, I nearly ended up sideways and I was being very delicate

Just driven Long Causeway. It was OK as long as you take it slow. Main road past Keelham and on to Queensbury is clear.

Just drove to the 606 through halifax from oxenhope (down long causeway). As long as you don't drive like an idiot you should have no problem finding traction.

Husband just text after driving to Hebden bridge “Heb road snowy and icy, passable with care. One car off in ditch towards peckett well”

Once your a mile or 2 out of the village towards bradford/bingley its all clear

If anyone could advise on conditions from Oxenhope to top of Oakworth that's be much appreciated. I've got to get my son to the childminder before getting up to pre-school X
