The Brontë Mountain Bike Challenge is ideal for both mountain bikers and X bikers. The three routes are named after the Brontë sisters as the routes travel through the very landscape that inspired their written works. All routes start at Oxenhope Recreation Ground and are well marked - feed stations are provided. The rides form part of the Ride for Ryder series of events across the country, which raises funds for us at Sue Ryder. The majority of proceeds from this ride go our local Sue Ryder Centre, Manorlands Hospice.

Walk the length of the Pennine Way through the South Pennines in three separate days, using our excellent public transport network to make linear walks possible. Walk all three days or pick one or two. Day Two: Brontë Country from Hebden Bridge to Stanbury via Walshaw Dean and 'Wuthering Heights'. A steady climb up to Walshaw Dean is rewarded with great views across a bleak but beautiful landscape, and a chance to visit the now ruined building that is thought to be the setting for Wuthering Heights. Descending past Haworth to the village of Stanbury.
Meanwhile, far from Yorkshire, in the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, a talk about Wuthering Heights:
