Walk Information
The walk is suitable for the most reasonably fit occasional walkers; has the added attraction of linking three important sites associated with Emily Bronte's novel, "Wuthering Heights". Starting wtih an easy first 1 3/4 miles following the Pennine Way over Haworth Moor to Top Withens Farm. As you make your way across Wuthering Heights on Stanbury Moor the terrain changes to rough open moorland with long heather, the occasional boggy section and the crossing of two streams, which both have no bridge. The return journey is a little easier across rough moorland grass, following footpaths and farm tracks as you make your way down past Ponden Reservoir, to finish back at Stanbury bus terminus.
