Haworth, Bronte Country & Forest Of Trawden

Haworth is famous worldwide as the home town of the three Bronte sisters, and the novels they wrote were strongly influenced by the Pennine landscapes they saw around them.

It's easy to follow the Bronte Way from Haworth itself across Penistone Hill towards peaceful Bronte Bridge and the waterfalls above (Emily Bronte is said to have sat on the rock near the Bronte Waterfalls to gain inspiration). Beyond, the Pennine Way will take you to Top Withens, the isolated ruin which is believed to have been the inspiration for Wuthering Heights.

The Bronte Way continues westwards to the fascinating village of Wycoller, with its thousand-year old clam bridge. Wycoller is now a Country Park. Further west again, the Bronte Way skirts Boulsworth Hill and the former royal hunting area of the Forest of Trawden.
