West Yorkshire is a region of great character. This is a land of old mill towns, revamped Victorian mills, bleak gritstone fells and ancient packhorse routes.
Walking holidays features prominently on the list of things to do in West Yorkshire. Among the many long-distance paths in this region is the Calderdale Way, offering a fascinating insight into the Pennine heartland of this once-industrial region. Most famous of all West Yorkshire’s longer routes is surely the Pennine Way, which opened to walkers more than 50 years ago in April 1965. This was Britain’s first national long-distance footpath.
One of the more surprising features to be found on the route is the ruined house known as Top Withins. This is thought to be the inspiration for Wuthering Heights, the Earnshaw home in Emily Bronte’s stirring novel of the same name. The Bronte sisters knew the area well, and their home, Bronte Parsonage, lies just a few miles from the remote ruin in the village of Haworth.
