A bracing walk over a lovely moorland, passing the Bronte falls and bridge, a small part of the way we were followed by a little Grouse that made its rather strange territorial squawk, very well signposted round trip

I did this walk starting from Haworth and taking in the Bronte waterfalls. C 11 miles in total, mostly easy walking on well defined signposted tracks, the going getting harder from the Falls to Top Withens stretch. The printed directions that I got were not entirely accurate, esp from the Bronte Falls to Top Withens, but fairly obvious which track to take. The (roofless) building is reputed to be the choice of Emily Bronte as they home of Heathcliff of Wuthering Heights fame and the explanatory plaque provided by the Bronte Society supports this view. It is certainly located in a hauntingly desolate position on the moor so that certainly fits the bill. I can recommend this as a good half days walk if you are reasonably fit with splendid moorland views and history to enjoy.

The best place I have been for hiking in Yorkshire. Picturesque, widespread and peaceful. Going here helps me understand how it inspired Emily to write Wuthering Heights. Although I went alone, it was not very hard to find Top Withens. But it is quite far and hilly to get to the place. I kept telling myself that I needed to finish the hike and reach the designated destination. When I finally got to the top, it felt so good like I had had achieved something great. I'd love to come back there soon on a sunny day to fully enjoy the scenery.

Top Withens had the wind wuthering and almost sent me hurtling down the moors. I crouched behind a shrub and steadied myself. The moor are magical and wild. I had carried a packed lunch but could not eat as the winds were talking to me.
