Wycoller s a conservation area, and is closed to outside traffic. It dates back to before the 10th century BC. Central to the village are the ruins of Wycoller Hall. Wycoller Hall was a late sixteenth century manor house. Wycoller Hall is thought to be the inspiration for Ferndean Manor in Charlotte Brontë‘s Jane Eyre. The Brontës lived in the nearby village of Haworth, and both Charlotte and her sister Emily probably visited Wycoller on their walks.

Wycoller almost was located under a lake. There was a plan to create a dam in the neighbourhood, which would result in the flooding of this area. Obviously, the plan wasn’t executed. A variety of ancient bridges cross Wycoller Beck, including ‘Pack-Horse Bridge’, a twin arched bridge in the centre of the village, ‘Clapper Bridge’ and ‘Clam Bridge’. The latter is believed to be of neolithic origin (at least, over 1000 years old) and is listed as an ancient monument. It consists of just a long stone laid across the river. It was damaged by floods in 1989 and 1990, though has now been repaired.
