Keighley storyteller and musician Jim Pickles is taking part in two separate Haworth Festival events. (...)Not in Haworth but in Saltaire:
The following day, [June 19], Jim will lead a walk from Haworth Parish Church to Top Withins – reputedly the setting for Emily Brontë’s novel Wuthering Heights – via the Bronte Waterfalls.
The free activity sets off at 10am.
Jim said: “Due to steep and uneven terrain, this walk should only be undertaken by people comfortable with such conditions.
“Dogs on leads are welcome. A refreshment break is planned on the return. I'm hoping for good weather, because there is no alternatives planned if the weather isn't good!” (David Knights in The Telegraph & Argus)
