Haworth, home of the Brontës...

 ...and one of the greatest literary shrines in the world…famous for the “Railway Children” and the Worth Valley Railway.


But does this beautiful Pennine village - visited by tens of thousands of pilgrims every year - possess dark secrets unknown; secrets that only those who know what to look for ever find…?

Whisper the words “Wuthering Heights” or “Jane Eyre” to almost anyone in the world and they will immediately conjure up thoughts of three sisters of whom, 150 years ago, lived in a dark and dismal parsonage on a wind-swept Pennine hillside above a Yorkshire village called Haworth.

Speak also of the Great Age of Steam and many thousands more will think of the classic Worth Valley Railway with its wonderful array of steam trains, and its locations, including Oakworth - home of the “Railway Children” - a gentle story created by E. Nesbit and turned into a film that has become an all-time British classic of the 20th century.

Haworth certainly is a place worth visiting, and if not only for the above then for its beautiful olde-worlde facade; its cobbled streets and back-alleys; and its fine array of bric-a-brac shops, inns, and hostelries.

But what if it had a darker side? What if it was possible to turn the world of Haworth upside-down and discover things that perhaps should be better left alone? What if…

Sorry! This is a mystery tour. If we tell you what to expect you won’t need to come will you? You are going to have to trust your guide on this one. So when he tells you that “this is possibly the most entertaining of all my walks” you will just have to believe him!

Be prepared to be chilled…
