Emily Brontë was a regular visitor to Ponden Hall near Haworth, which is believed to be the inspiration for Thrushcross Grange and the Wuthering Heights farmhouse from her literary masterpiece of the same name

Oh Heathcliff! Where would we be without Emily Brontë’s dark and brooding saga of ill-fated romance and revenge set amid the rugged landscape of the Yorkshire Moors?

Well, we certainly wouldn’t have Kate Bush’s haunting lyrics (or the splendid video) inspired by the novel and what a travesty that would be. But, more importantly, Ponden Hall would be just another picturesque manor house in a lovely rural setting.

And my, it is rather lovely. And now the Grade II-listed home that was the inspiration for Thrushcross Grange or the Wuthering Heights farmhouse itself (depending on who you talk to) is on the market for £950,000.
