Wuthering Heights 2011

Wuthering Heights 2011

The latest much anticipated version of Emily Brontë’s classic 1847 novel Wuthering Heights is out in cinemas this November (2011).

The film is directed by Andrea Arnold and the screenplay by Olivia Hetreed. The film stars Kaya Scodelario, Nichola Burley and James Howson.

Walshaw Lodge is located right next to the very moors where the film, and indeed the book are set. The 4 hour hour round-trip walk from Walshaw Lodge to Top Withens and back is a must. Top Withens is the central location for the story, and the iconic moorscape forms an integral part of the new film.
