• This is a Manchester Literature Festival event. Booking only through www.quaytickets.com.
• Guide: Ed Glinert at his poetic best.
Out on the wily, windy moors we’ll roll and fall, sort of, searching out the literary locations of West Yorkshire – the poetic haunts of Ted Hughes, the Heptonstall grave of Sylvia Plath and, in particular, the sights and sounds of Wuthering Heights, on the trail of the Brontë sisters, whose 200th anniversaries are imminent.
We will spend time in Haworth while recalling Mr Earnshaw’s walk from there to Liverpool in search of Heathcliff, which we won’t be re-creating.
There will be a lunch stop in Haworth or bring a packed lunch.
