IT’S TIME for rhyme as the Tour de Yorkshire returns to Haworth.

The Brontë Parsonage Museum has booked a poet to appear on the same day as the cyclists race through the village.

Winston Plowes and his Random Poetry Generating Bicycle will be in and around the museum on April 30, from 11am to 4pm.

A museum spokesman said: “We wanted to be involved in the Tour de Yorkshire, but couldn’t face the cobbles.

“So as the cyclists make their way through Haworth, look out for our Parsonage Poet on a Bike – Winston Plowes – and his Random Poetry Generating Bicycle.

“Winston will be pottering around the Parsonage and Main Street, inspiring all to find their hidden poet. Lycra not essential.”

Winston’s visit also ties in with the parsonage’s year of celebrations for the 200th anniversary of Branwell Brontë’s birth.
