Free parking & how to get there

It takes approx 45 minutes to walk from Haworth Main Street to the Bronte Waterfall or 25 minutes from Penistone Hill Country Park which has free parking.

It’s a relatively easy walk with larger stones and rougher terrain the closer you get. The Bronte Waterfall walk is therefore not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs. You can decide to either walk back the same way you came or follow our map for a circular route.

Please take your litter home with you and know that BBQs are not permitted due to the potential of moorland fires.
