Oh Heathcliff! Where would we be without Emily Brontë’s dark and brooding saga of ill-fated romance and revenge set amid the rugged landscape of the Yorkshire Moors?
Well, we certainly wouldn’t have Kate Bush’s haunting lyrics (or the splendid video) inspired by the novel and what a travesty that would be. But, more importantly, Ponden Hall would be just another picturesque manor house in a lovely rural setting.
And my, it is rather lovely. And now the Grade II-listed home that was the inspiration for Thrushcross Grange or the Wuthering Heights farmhouse itself (depending on who you talk to) is on the market for £950,000.
