It was served by Copley railway station from 1856 to 1931.

Today the village has a hairdressers, a health spa, a garage, Land Rover and Camper Van dealerships and one Pub, The Volunteer Arms. A Newsagent/General Store was formerly located in the centre of the village; however, closed in mid-2012 due to both the cancellation of The Courier Newspaper and decrease in trade with the local community, which brought about most of their revenue.

The village contains two sports venues, Copley Cricket Club and Old Rishworthian rugby team. Both clubs are well established and Old Rishworthians currently play in Yorkshire 2 (level 8) of the RFU National League structure.Both the cricket and Rugby club are based in picturesque settings with the Calder and Hebble Navigation to the north and the River Calder to the south. The main Leeds to Manchester railway line is near both grounds.Events are held at both locations, as well as various other special functions throughout the year, most notably the annual Fireworks display held each year at the Cricket Club in early November.

One of the key computer data centres for Lloyds Banking Group (LBG) is located a few miles outside the village. This was formerly the main data centre for HBOS before the merger.


St. Stephen's Church was built on Copley Lane, but just over the river in Greetland, as the rector of Halifax did not want it built in his parish.[1] It was designed by local architect W. H. Crossland in a French inspired Gothic style.[2]
