Boots and wellies to the ready, it’s always the perfect day to explore the beautiful South Pennine moorland around Haworth. Follow the path beside the parsonage and you’ll be out the wilds in minutes, climbing up and out of the village and into a world of labyrinthine trails. Spot the signs to Top Withins – the inspiration for Earnshaw’s house in Wuthering Heights – and make tracks to the beautiful Brontë Falls.
Mansion to museum
Of course there’s more to Brontë Country than just Brontë. For a fascinating day of history and curiosities visit Cliffe Castle Museum, the once spectacular mansion of local Victorian millionaire H I Butterfield. The house is now a large museum and is filled with an array of glittering minerals, rocks and even a 2m long fossil newt. Don’t miss the William Morris stained glass, original chandeliers and old toys.
