25 October 2015
Sunday 10.30am until 5.00pm
Out on the wily, windy moors we’ll rove, searching out the literary locations of West Yorkshire. Join tour guide Ed Glinert as we investigate the poetic haunts of Ted Hughes’ Elmet, the Heptonstall grave of Sylvia Plath and, in particular, the sights and sounds of Wuthering Heights, on the trail of the Brontë sisters, whose 200th anniversaries are imminent. We will spend time in Haworth while recalling Mr Earnshaw’s walk from there to Liverpool in search of Heathcliff. An enjoyable outing for lovers of Yorkshire and literature alike. Meet outside the Britannia Hotel.
There will be a lunch stop in Haworth or bring a packed lunch.
