West end of Harbottle village from the Castle
The church sits at the west end of the village. It is one of three nonconformist churches within the National Park, built in 1854 NT9304 : Former Presbyterian Church, Harbottle. These formerly Presbyterian (and now United Reformed Church), make a sharp contrast to the Pennine Dales thirty miles to the south, where virtually every hamlet had either a Wesleyan or Primitive Methodist Chapel or both.

To the south of the village, Harbottle Wood (Newpark Plantation) extends onto the spur of Gallow Edge described in the OS Name Book for Alwinton (c1860) as "An elevated ridge on Harbottle Common where the 'Lord Warden
of the Marches' executed Moss Troopers and other Criminals."

The ridge was the route of an old access track to the shepherd's house (now ruined) at Harbottle Crag NT9202 : Disused abandoned farmstead on Harbottle Crag
