The third major English-language film of the Emily Bronte novel includes more of the story than previous versions, though Juliette Binoche seems miscast as Cathy.
This ‘Wuthering Heights’ is a set which was built just north of Grassington, on the North Yorkshire, north of Skipton. A couple of miles to the southwest, the standing stones were erected on Boss Moor.
‘Thrushcross Grange’, home of Edgar Linton (Simon Shepherd), is Broughton Hall, which is now a business park, two and a half miles west of Skipton itself.
Heathcliff (Ralph Fiennes) works in the tithe barn and outhouses of the 17th century manor house East Riddlesden Hall, Bradford Road, Keighley, now a National Trust property.
Cathy and Heathcliff declare their love near Aysgarth Falls, on the River Ure at Aysgarth, on the A684 about 15 miles north of Skipton. The falls are also featured in 1991's Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves, with Kevin Costner.
The wild Yorkshire moors themselves were filmed around Malham Cove, a 260-feet-high amphitheatre-shaped cliff just outside the village of Malham, north of Skipton. The famous limestone pavement here can be seen in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, Part I; while the village of Malham itself and the lake, Malham Tarn, were featured in 1958 Bette Davis melodrama Another Man’s Poison.
