A 'COAT of Hopes' is heading to Haworth as part of an ongoing pilgrimage around Britain.

The coat, adorned with patches sewn on by people to represent their hopes for the earth and the future, began its 'journey' in 2021.

It will arrive in Haworth on Saturday (June 29), and stay in the village until it sets off on the next leg of its journey – to Hebden Bridge – on Wednesday, July 3.

Rector of Haworth and Cross Roads, the Rev Oli Preston, has collaborated with textiles artist Anna Scott – from Bronte Upholstery – to bring the garment to the area.

"It’s really exciting to be part of the coat’s journey around the country and we will be having some mending sessions in the parish church which anyone can attend and help with," says the Rev Preston.

On Saturday, the coat is being walked from Bradford Cathedral to Haworth, where it is due to arrive mid-afternoon.

That evening, at 7pm, there will be prayers and reflection at the parish church.

The coat will be seen around the village on the Sunday, from noon, and repair workshops will take place over three days.
