* Sun 3 September 2017 (Haworth General Trail).
* Sun 22 October 2017 (Literature Festival Bronte special).
Meet: Haworth steam railway station, 1pm.
End: In a pub, probably The Wuthering Heights itself of course.
Why Haworth? Romantic, erotic, sensual, passionate, brooding, wild, windy and wuthering, Haworth is one of the most remarkable places on earth. A melancholic moorside village in West Yorkshire, it is also one of the most famous literary locations in the world, thanks to Emily Bronte’s extraordinary and overpowering 1845 novel Wuthering Heights.
The village is delightful, quaint and charming, but all around is a dark landscape of brooding hills, windy moors and melancholy valleys that so inspired Emily and her two brilliant sisters, Anne and Charlotte, both renowned novelists, and continues to mesmerise poets and performers, from Kate Bush to Patti Smith.
Join us on a stroll around the village and a quick sneak onto the moors of Bronte Country, home of Heathcliff and Wuthering Heights, before it gets dark and lonely, on the other side.
* Best bring walking boots, waterproofs and maybe a packed lunch.
