This walk links three important sites associated with Emily Bronte’s novel, “Wuthering Heights”.

Starting with an easy first 1 3/4 miles (3km) following the Pennine Way over Haworth Moor to Top Withins Farm. Then make your way across Wuthering Heights on Stanbury Moor before returning past Ponden Reservoir, to your finish back at Stanbury bus terminus.

You will require good wind and waterproof clothing, along with strong waterproof walking boots, a South Pennines OL21 ordnance survey map and a compass could also prove invaluable as you cross open country, especially if mist, fog or low cloud is expected. Food and drink are also recommended. Compass bearings given in the walk instructions are for a guide only and should be checked by the individual walker on the day of their walk.

Dogs -  Due to restrictions across open country between Top Withins Farm and Penistone Crag on Stanbury Moor, dogs are not permitted on this walk.
