IN another trip down memory lane, we look at Haworth Moor and Top Withens – said to have been the inspiration for the location of the Earnshaw family house Wuthering Heights in the 1847 novel of the same name written by Emily Bronte, who lived in nearby Haworth at what is now the world-renowned Bronte Parsonage Museum.

In 1964, stonemasons Aspinall and Hanson accepted an order from the Brontë Society for a stone plaque to be carved and fixed in a wall of the ruined farmhouse, Top Withens.

The tough job included having to carry the heavy stone half a mile, after a tractor became bogged down on the rough hillside.
