Top Withens

A Sunday walk up the Withens…

This remote spot is closely associated with the Brontë’s, as Top Withens is often cited as the inspiration for the setting of Emily Brontë’s 1847 novel Wuthering Heights. Although there are other buildings in the area that fit the description of Heathcliff’s home more closely, Top Withens and the views from it encapsulate the landscape that inspired the Brontës’ writing and continues to be a place of pilgramage for visitors from all over the world.
