Walking in Bronte Country

Leeming Wells, Oxenhope, near Haworth, West Yorkshire

With its wild Pennine moors and deep valleys the Bronte Country area of West Yorkshire and East Lancashire is popular with walkers and ramblers who come to explore the varied terrain which can be found here.

The Pennine Way long distance footpath passes through the area, as does the Bronte Way, the Bradford Millennium Footpath and the Great Northern Trail.

A particularly popular excursion for Bronte enthusiasts is the walk to Top Withens starting from Stanbury, Haworth or Penistone Hill (the latter taking in the sights of the Bronte Waterfall, the Bronte Chair and the Bronte Bridge en route).

Guided walks and tours of the area are also available from various independent operators. Please click here for more information.
