On the hillside across from Little Hucklow is Intake Farm, its name taken from the medieval practice of enclosing the land and taking it in from the uncultivated moorland or wilderness that would then have surrounded the homestead. Whilst on the hillside opposite is the gliding Club sitting atop an ancient settlement at 1300 feet named Burrs Mount – this was an Iron Age oval shaped hill fort with double ditch.
The sleepy little village of Little Hucklow is devoid of a shop or church, but does however possess a lovely old pub which serves a thirst-quenching ale. The Bulls Head was at one time the Old Hall and dates from around 1660. Behind it is a contemporary cottage with a date stone. It is reputed that the highwayman Dick Turpin was a caller there.
