Haworth

A few photos of an afternoon jaunt to Haworth from last December. If I remember rightly, I was trying to avoid the Christmas shoppers and was heading in to the Dales. The traffic around the main Keighley roundabout was just gridlocked so I did an about turn and headed to Haworth instead.

The place seems to have had a bit of a renaissance with a lot more small shops opening. They are still outnumbered by the many cafes though. I think Haworth is a pretty village but the prettiness seems to stop two thirds of the way down the Main Street unfortunately. It is still a popular place to visit though.

I had a short stroll along The Bronte Way path which I think starts at the Church and I was blessed with a couple of minutes of sunshine. I didn't go very far but I will return when the weather is more settled and the days are longer. Not much of a substitute for The Dales though but at least I managed to avoid the shoppers.
