Hanging Heaton

Hanging Heaton is a large village in West Yorkshire, England. Partly in both Batley and Dewsbury it is a historic village mentioned in the Domesday Book under the name 'Etun'. The prefix 'Hanging' refers to a steep hillside hanging above lower ground. Heaton means 'High Farm' therefore Hanging Heaton was a lonely hillside farmstead and is identified in GENUKI. With housing dating from the 16th century to the present-day, it is a varied community with a successful cricket club, golf club, two churches and a community group in Hanging Heaton Community Group. Hanging Heaton is the location of the filming of the Comedy/Stunt show Gritsalt.
