Just two days before the storm I had a most enjoyable time in Haworth. In the morning I wanted to go for a walk to Long Bridge, a gorgeous spot in the Brontë Country I call my haven; a magical little place where I go to now and then for a peaceful, relaxing moment. It was a misty and very cold morning, the sun tentatively waiting to reveal its face from behind the veil of mist. I walked down Lord Lane, climbed over the stile to carry on along the fields by the river Worth, but as I suspected, it was too muddy for my liking. I went back and instead walked along the river the opposite way, along the path to Spring Head Road.

I returned to Haworth via Victoria Avenue and Mytholmes Lane, and just had enough time for a quick visit to the Brontë Parsonage Museum and graveyard.

Now it was time for a special encounter which I shall blog about in a separate post. It was a truly great day!
