WALKS and talks are on offer to summer visitors to Haworth's Bronte Parsonage Museum.

Free guided walks taking in landscape which inspired the literary sisters are being held every Wednesday afternoon throughout this month.

And on Tuesdays and Thursdays, free talks are covering topics ranging from Patrick Bronte's role in the village to early responses to the siblings' writings.

There are also family workshops, which focus on Moorland in Miniature tomorrow, and wax painting on Wednesday, both from11am to 4pm.

Sue Newby, education officer at the museum, said: "Like everyone else, we were really proud here at the parsonage to see Yorkshire looking so beautiful when the Tour de France arrived.

"This inspired us to focus on the landscape as a theme for our summer and autumn activities. These include craft workshops for families and short guided walks up on to Penistone Hill every Wednesday in August.

"As well as looking at the history of Haworth in the Brontes' day, we are also enjoying the heather coming to bloom upon the moors and exploring the impact the local landscape had on the sisters' writing."
