Top Withins Farm on Stanbury Moor on the Pennine Way is internationally famous as the inspiration for Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights. This fascinating book not only traces the history of the Withins farms and their inhabitants from 1567 to the present day, but also looks at the everyday life of the farmers who lived there. Beautifully illustrated, this book provides a full account of the building history, farming practices, textile production and domestic life over the years. The Real Wuthering Heights is the most complete account of life and work on a Pennine hill farm.
