Top Withins

Top Withins, it is said, is the name that gave Emily Bronte the inspiration for Wuthering Heights.  It’s now a ruined farmhouse in the middle of absolutely nowhere.  I just had to go and visit it, and tried to get there last year, but was beaten back by the wind, and the rain, and the sleet, and the  ghosts hail.

The moors can be so atmospheric, those Bronte siblings must have been hardy souls to trudge around them the way they did.

The weather was kinder this year, so I managed the trek.  Somewhere else to cross off my list …

These moors are very wild and windy!

So I took shelter in 'Wuthering Heights' to read my book.
