Haworth Primary School pupils have followed a previous child of the village in writing Wuthering Heights.

Emily Brontë wrote the original manuscript of the famous novel the 1800s while living at Haworth Parsonage.

This manuscript has been lost, so the Parsonage Museum and artist Clare Twomey is now asking visitors to each write a line to create a replacement manuscript.

Pupils at the school visited the Haworth museum this month to each write a line with support from volunteer Stuart Davies.

Sue Newby, the museum Learning Officer, said ‘Wuthering Heights – A Manuscript’ had captured the imagination of visitors from all over the world.

She said: “We were really pleased to offer pupils from our local primary school the opportunity to sit in the house where Emily wrote her famous novel and take their turn to copy out a line.

“All the children seemed to relish the sense of occasion and we hope they will return next year with their families to see the finished manuscript.”
