Five writers go on five reflective, restorative and often playful journeys in search of the final resting places of their literary heroes.

Today, Anita Sethi journeys to the grave of her heroine Anne Brontë, overlooking the sea she so loved, and considers why she was buried high on a hill in Scarborough, away from her better known sisters. Her grave has over the years been neglected and ravaged by the elements, but more recently - like her reputation - restored.

Producer: Ciaran Bermingham
