Set high on the windswept heather covered Yorkshire moorlands, the ruins of Top Withens both inspire and depress. Believed by many to be the setting for Emily Brontë’s ‘Wuthering Heights’, the abandoned farm evokes the atmosphere of the Brontë sisters’ novels. Here, a mere three miles from the hill-top village of Haworth, sombre isolation can be found in these wild, brooding moorlands. The Brontë sisters loved to roam these beautiful moors.

Charlotte wrote of her sister, Emily, ‘They were far more to her than a mere spectacle; they were what she lived in and by …. She found in the bleak solitude many and dear delights; and not the least and best loved was – liberty.’
