Wuthering Heights

Category: Places | Type: Historical | Title: Wuthering Heights (in Context) | Author: Emily Brontë | Ch: Chapter I

Wuthering Heights is likely an amalgamation. Beside the possibility of Ponden House, another source is Top Withins (photos below). Another, at least for the inscriptions and carvings, is High Sunderland in Halifax parish, a house Brontë became familiar with when she taught at Law Hill.
