Week 9: Sunday Walk in Haworth
Normally the last walk of the Winter term, Haworth lies in Bronte country. This walk is run slightly differently to the usual format as Haworth is a pretty xmassy village which holds a christmas market and various nativity themed events throughout December. Basically the long walkers go off as normal and the medium groups only do a walk in the morning, have lunch and spend the afternoon either shopping, looking round the village or at the Bronte sisters museum.
"What's great is walking in the area that inspired Emily Bronte's amazing novel, Wuthering Heights. The atmosphere at christmas is also very nice, with the street performances and christmas shopping."
We'll take a coach to Haworth, and from there split into two groups, one group takes a medium-length walk whilst the second group take on a larger route. Both walks are preplanned and lead by our trained walk leaders.
Medium walks are generally between 6 and 8 miles (10-13 km) long, and tend to be at a reasonably gentle pace and always include a stop for a pub lunch. Long walks are slightly more challenging and are between 10 and 12 miles (16-19 km) long and don't include a pub lunch but instead stop for a packed lunch along the way. At 4.00pm all the groups meet back at the coach and return back to the University, arriving no later than 6.00pm.
