From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cross Roads with Lees or Cross Roads cum Lees, is a small village which lies on the main A629 road between the village of Haworth and the town of Keighley in West Yorkshire, England.

Cross Roads is named after the cross roads junction which leads in the directions of Keighley, Haworth, Denholme and further afield. Lees is a small village which is often claimed to be part of the Cross Roads village - the 'Cross Roads Fish & Chips Shop', for example, is in Lees. However, officially Lees is recognised as a small village, separate but connected to Cross Roads under the Cross Roads cum Lees name. When entering from Haworth Brow, it is signposted Lees-cum-Crossroads.



Cross Roads has three pubs and a club. The Cross Roads Inn is a pub located at the junction to the Bocking area. There are three other pubs, The Bronte Hotel towards Haworth but still within the village, The New Inn and The Bocking Working Men's Club (members only).


Cross Roads has produced several sporting teams in the past, including football, cricket and bowling. Only the bowling team, Cross Roads Bowling Club, exists today and it plays its home matches on the bowling green in Cross Roads Park.

Unsolved name mystery

Most who live in the village know it as 'Crossroads'. However many outsiders automatically spell 'Cross Roads' and this is seen as its official name. This may be incorrect however.
