Ponden Hall ("Thrushcross Grange"
in Emily Bronte's "Wuthering Heights")
Ponden Hall is near to Stanbury, Elevation is 859ft.
Emily Bronte is said to have portrayed Ponden Hall as "Thrushcross Grange" the home of the Linton family in "Wuthering Heights".
Above the door reads:
"The Old house now Standing was built by Robert Heaton for his son Michael, Anno Domini 1634. The old Porch and Peahouse was built by his Grandson Robert Heaton A.D 1680. The present building was rebuilt by his descendant R.H.1801."
On the gable end of the house, the tiny single paned window is said to be the one Emily used in her novel from which the ghost looked out of.
"I muttered, knocking my knuckles through
the glass, and stretching an arm out to seize the importunate branch; instead of which, my fingers closed on the fingers of a little, ice-cold hand!"
