The Brontë Waterfall, frozen and sparkling

An early morning photoshoot for work in Keighley got me up and out long before sunrise this Sunday. By 9.30am work was done and I decided to take a detour across from Haworth to Colne on the way home: a wan golden sun lit up the frozen moors and I stopped off for a walk in the glorious countryside. This is, after all, Brontë Country, where the three famous sisters grew up and wrote their novels, inspired in part by these bleak yet beautiful hills.

A sign to the Brontë Waterfall sounded interesting, so I followed South Dean Beck up the hillside for a mile or so and found the waterfall tucked hidden in the shadows of the valley. I hadn’t expected it to look so exceptionally pretty, clad in lacy frost and icicles as it did. A perfect moorland gem.
