The Bronte Country is an area of northern England, situated around the village of Haworth in the county of West Yorkshire. It's where the famed Bronte sisters grew up and wrote several acclaimed novels. Some of their works include "Jane Eyre", "The Tenant of Wildfell Hall" and "Wuthering Heights".
Haworth is situated deep in the Pennine region, with Bradford & Leeds to the east and Manchester a short drive west. The area itself is highly scenic with desolate moorland, rocky hillsides and plenty of walkways to get you around. The most famous walk, arguably, leads you past Lower Laithe reservoir, Bronte Falls, Bridge and Stone Chair, all way up to Top Withens, the setting for Heathcliff's farmstead in "Wuthering Heights".
Bronte Country extends into East Lancashire, over the tops of the Pennines, almost to the industrial town of Burnley. Several locations in East Lancashire are believed to have inspired locations in the novels of the Bronte sisters.
