Staying at Wuthering Heights (as one does…..)
We stayed over night in Haworth for the first time. It was wet and windy, living up to it’s wuthering reputation. We stayed at Haworth Old Hall, built in the 1600s and full of atmosphere. This was the original Wuthering Heights! I’m talking about the very first film of Emily Bronte’s book, made in the 1920s of course. Apparently this film has disappeared and the Bronte Society would very much like to get hold of it! Read about it HERE
The place itself is full of character and serves wonderful meals. Flag floors, stone, wooden floorboards, mullion windows and big fireplaces – what more could you want? A bat did lose its way and fly through our window..but that only added to the visit! We were assured that this was VERY unusual and NOT an everyday occurrence (I don’t want to put anyone off staying here – it’s fab and the staff and hosts are very friendly and generous!). So I suppose that the bat must have been an omen of some sort meant just for us …hope it was a good one lol!
So many mysteries lately, disappearing films, visits from bats and the unearthing of a possible Bronte painting! Lots to think about.
