Yorkshire Railways & Bronte Country
The unspoilt dramatic moors to old industrial valleys, rugged villages to the bustling towns, the dramatic moorland all combined to inspire the Bronte Sisters to pen novels which became classics of English literature. With scenery so beautiful you just want to sit and gaze at the bubbling streams, sprawling valleys and dales.
