Entry to Main Street, Stanbury

The surrounding countryside is mainly moors and farmland. The village is close to the Brontë waterfall and Top Withens tourist landmarks. Emily Brontë is reputed to have used Top Withens as the model for the location of Wuthering Heights, and nearby Ponden Hall (half a mile from the edge of Stanbury) has been considered the model for 'Thrushcross Grange' in the same book.

There is a school and an Anglican church in Stanbury. The school caters for primary school age children. There are also two public houses: the Wuthering Heights (formerly, and locally, known as 'The Cross') and The Friendly. The Old Silent Inn (formerly The Eagle) is a public house and guest house close to the village.
