It is spring in the Worth Valley...the lambing has started, the Curlews and the Lapwings are deciding who shall have which areas to nest in and the Grouse are flying low over the moors. It is breathtaking, still cold, but breathtaking. You will still need lots of layers to venture out onto the high moors.
We offer a range of guided tours, walks and services that are designed to help you make the most of your visit to Haworth, the Worth Valley and the surrounding area.
This area has so much to offer visitors…
-The breathtaking landscapes that inspired and sustained the Brontës.
-The story of the Brontës themselves.
-The steam railway that fills the valley with the sound of roaring trains and echoes to their whistles.
-The cobbled streets, the shopping and the promise of sumptuous teas.
-Foaming glasses of Timothy Taylors, or Steam Brewery Ales.
-The mighty River Worth and the echoes of an industrial past found in the shadows of ruined mills and on the sets of packhorse bridges.
-You can stand on Ponden Kirk and listen to the voices of Cathy and Heathcliffe as they ride the edge of the wind.
-You can picnic in the ruins of Bolton Abbey and dip your toes into the cold waters of the River Wharfe.
-You can do all this and so much more.
The Worth Valley is beautiful and one of the best ways to enjoy its rugged, windswept beauty is to follow the footpaths across the moors.
There is so much to see and so many paths to choose.
To help you with this we offer three guided walks that will help you discover the delights of the area.
-The Wild Workshop of their imagination
-The Mighty River Worth
-The Railway Children
We can also work with you to create your own journey of discovery to take in the places, views and habitats that you want to see.
Our guides are above all else great story tellers and their love and knowledge of the valley shines through their work. They have a light touch with history and a welcoming way with people.
