Our walk on the Haworth Moors "Bronte Country". Part 1.

Posted by Ann Cruickshanks on

Sunday 25th August 2019. 

It was August Bank Holiday with glorious weather.

Thinking that the motorway to the Lake District would just be so busy with traffic, we decided to head to Haworth Moors (we are very fortunate in that we live only 20 miles from Haworth) where it would be a lot more quieter to enjoy our walk.

Daniel always plans and plots our walks before we set off, so that we know where to park, how many miles the walk will be and an estimate of the time it will take.

At this time of year the moors are putting on a spectacular show of colour.  Rich purples and pinks flourish from the blooms of the heather which radiate over a great percentage of the hills.

To walk amongst the heather in that special Bronte place is breathtaking and exhilarating.

We parked the car at Ponden Reservoir.  Sun hats, sun oil and lots of water was needed for the hot day.  Our route was from Ponden Reservior to Haworth where a brew and piece of cake in Haworth was halfway and then back to the car.

Firstly south on the Pennine Way, gently uphill then down to the Bronte Bridge.

 

 

From the bridge we walked along the `Bronte Way'. Over Penistone Hill and then down into Haworth. Instead of a hot cup of tea an ice cream was much needed and was eaten sitting on a bench in the garden of the Bronte Parsonage.
