Jan. 21, 2011 - PRLog -- Little Hucklow is surrounded by rich green pasture, dramatic landscape, quaint little cottages and pockets of ancient meadowland where in spring there are wonderful displays of wild flowers.Little Hucklow is surrounded by a network of narrow lanes and roads. Hungry Lane and Jeffrey Lane toward Bradwell date from medieval times, but it is thought that the main B6040 could originally have been Roman and a route to Navio, the Roman fort at Brough.

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.
