Haworth is a tourist attraction, best known for its association with the Brontë sisters. Haworth is a good base for exploring the principal attractions of Brontë Country. In Haworth passes the 43 miles (69 km) long Brontë Way. It leads out of the valley and up on the moors to Ponden Hall (reputedly Thrushcross Grange in Emily Brontë‘s Wuthering Heights) and Top Withens, a desolate ruin which was reputedly the setting for the farmstead Wuthering Heights. Top Withens can also be reached by a shorter walking route departing from the nearby village of Stanbury.
The Haworth Pottery was established by Anne Shaw in 1971 in Haworth, West Yorkshire, England. The pottery was initially supported by a loan from the Council for Small Industries in Rural Areas. Shaw trained under Beresford Peeling of Harnham Mill Pottery at Southampton College of Art (now Southampton Solent University) on the professional potters course.
