VISITORS to the Bronte Parsonage Museum will be invited to help create a handwritten copy of Wuthering Heights.

Ten thousand visitors to the Haworth museum this year will be invited to each copy one sentence of the novel into a handmade book.

The project is being led by artist Clare Twomey and will run from April 6 until the end of the year, with the new manuscript going on display at the museum in 2018, during Emily Brontë’s by centenary year.

The original manuscript for Emily’s famous novel has not survived.

A museum spokesman said: “Clare hopes that the act of sitting at a table in the house where Emily wrote her novel, and to hold a pen and write, will build understanding of Emily.”
