Yorkshire Live shares 'The very best Yorkshire walks' as voted for by its readers, including
Brontë Waterfall
Famous, of course, for its association with the Brontë sisters, the Brontë Waterfall is set among breathtaking countryside. Set in a valley surrounded by moorland and farmland, the area offers some truly beautiful walking and makes for a wonderful spot for photography. (Phoebe Fuller)
What Culture reviews the TV series The Haunting of Bly Manor.
Either way, Flanagan has much to be proud of here, as a version of James' classic ghost story. James presented the notion that perhaps the hauntings were merely the imaginings of the governess, who refers directly to Jane Eyre and the character of Bertha, a madwoman confined in Thornfield, the primary location of the story and not entirely unlike Bly Manor itself. While Flanagan's adaptation is primarily a more literal approach to the hauntings, much is made of the mind's ability to conjure apparitions and therefore very much in keeping with the original text, despite never being totally sure which one it's referring to.

ScreenRant looks at the filming locations for The Princess Bride and one of them was Haddon Hall.
Prince Humperdinck's Castle: Haddon Hall - Derbyshire, England
The interior and exterior of this Tudor period country house were used in filming scenes that take place at Prince Humperdinck’s Castle. When Westley is supposedly killed, leaving Buttercup alone, Buttercup is forced into an engagement with Prince Humperdinck. The engagement is announced and the former commoner is introduced as Princess Buttercup at Prince Humperdinck’s castle in Florin City. The exterior of the castle appears again when Buttercup has a nightmare of an old woman berating her for marrying Humperdinck. Haddon Hall has also appeared in film adaptations of Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre. (Caroline Fox)
