Bronte Ways: Part 2 Film Poster


The Brontë Way is a trail of about 43 miles stretching from Birstall near Leeds in West Yorkshire, traversing the Pennines to Gawthorpe Hall at Padiham in Lancashire. This programme takes the viewer along this walk and visits the many places associated with the lives and literary works of the Brontë family. Part 2 begins with a more thorough look at Haworth exploring the many places involved in the lives of the Brontës, such as the Black Bull Inn, the Apothecary and the looming presence of the church graveyard. Journey up to Top Withins to experience the landscape and atmosphere which inspired 'Wuthering Heights' before passing Ponden Hall and crossing the Pennines to the beautiful village of Wycoller featured in 'Jane Eyre'. Then deeper into Lancashire under the watchful eye of Pendle Hill, home to the notorious Pendle Witches. The film ends in the surroundings of Gawthorpe Hall, the former home of the Kay-Shuttleworth family who Charlotte visited on several occasions.
