77 x 57 cm

Drawn on location on Haworth Moor, Yorkshire above Top Withins, the supposed setting for Emily Bronte's novel 'Wuthering Heights'. If the Bronte sisters walked up to Top Withins then they would almost certainly have ventured onto to moorland top behind it because of the drama of the view and the fresh wildness of the heather peat land. The pile of grit stones are glacial eractic showing strong ridge markings from glacier movement. They are arranged almost like a neolithic burial chamber and contrast beautifully with the surrounding dark brown heather. At the end of the last ice age they would have stood several metres higher than now but have been buried under peat at the rate of approximately 1m per 1000 years. At this rate they will be submerged in 2000 years from now.
