The Bronte Way is a trail of about 43 miles stretching from Birstall near Leeds in West Yorkshire, traversing the Pennines to Gawthorpe Hall at Padiham in Lancashire. 'Bronte Ways' takes us along this walk and visits the many places associated with the lives and literary works of the Bronte family.

Part One starts in 'Shirley Country' looking at Oakwell Hall, the Red House and other places which formed the locations for that novel including places connected to the Luddite rioters. It traces the Bronte family through Patrick's ministries at Hartshead and Thornton before the family moved to Haworth.

There are live interviews with people at the various museums and buildings preserving the Bronte story. It takes us through some spectacular scenery as well as exploring villages along the way such as Oxenhope and Norwood Green. Haworth is finally entered by way of a ride on the Keighley and Worth Valley Steam Railway, featured in the 'Railway Children'.

This section ends in Haworth with a tour of the Parsonage Museum and St. Michael and All Angels Church. Part Two will include a more thorough look at Haworth before exploring 'Wuthering heights' country then onto Gawthorpe Hall by way of Wycoller Village featured in 'Jane Eyre'.
