The Emily stone poem by Kate Bush

The Emily Stone, poem by Kate Bush

On the last leg of our Yorkshire walk we went off to find the Emily Stone. The Stone lies in Ogden Moor near to Ogden Reservoir in a place called Great Scar. On the Stone you will find a [poem](https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-43897500) that was written by Kate Bush and was finished in 2018, there are 4 stones in total and they all lie on a trail from their birthplace in Thorton to the family home in Haworth

Many trails make there way to the stone however we were pushed for time so we found a car park near to the Reservoir [click here ] from here we traced the beck into great scar and whitewall end when you get to end just head uphill you can’t miss the outcrop of large rocks called Ogden Clough. It takes a bit of finding the stone and there are a few steep banks so watch out. Coming back we tracked back along back lane to the car park.

Bronte falls waterfall walk.

A great Circular walk from the town of Haworth in Bronte country. You will find car parking easy enough it costs about £4.50 and the car park we picked was close to the start point of the hike across the moors. The walk is about 7 mile in total and you work your way along good paths for most of the journey, it a bit rocky near to the Bronte bridge but easy for all the family.

The Bronte bridge

The Bronte bridge runs across South Dean Beck and you will find the waterfall close by, at the time we walked there was a lack of water running down it so we never got to see it in all its glory.
