In the style of Walking with Beatrix Potter and Walking with Wordsworth, Walking with the Brontës is a pocket-sized book containing fifteen walking routes, predominantly in West Yorkshire.Each walk is to somewhere associated with one or more of the Brontë family, either in real life or with important characters or places in their novels: for instance the house on which Emily based Thrushcross Grange in Wuthering Heights, or the countryside around Cowan Bridge School which, with its harsh regime, caused the Brontë girls much suffering and became Lowood School in Charlottes Jane Eyre.The walks are generally short and fairly easy, contrasting semi-urban areas with the wild moorland above their home at the Parsonage Haworth. Each route is fully described, aided by sketch plans, and illustrated by new colour photographs. In each case, a separate text explains the Bronte associations, with extracts from their writing.
