Between the Peak District and the Yorkshire Dales is the South Pennines, an area of bleak
upland situated between the mill towns of east Lancashire and West Yorkshire. The gritstone
moorland is dotted with numerous small reservoirs which provided water for the cotton mills
in the valleys below. The moors around Haworth provided inspiration for classic novels by
the Brontė Sisters who were raised at the Parsonage which can be visited by fans of the
sisters whether they arrive in Haworth by car, bus or on the preserved Keighley & Worth
Valley Railway which was the filming location for "The Railway Children"
