A journey through the English town where the Brontë sisters lived and wrote—for visitors or armchair travelers. Includes photos and two dozen maps.
This lighthearted but deeply researched book offers interest and guidance to walkers, social historians, and lovers of the Brontë family, their lives and works. Set in and around the town of Haworth, it allows you to explore this unique area of Yorkshire and walk in the footsteps of those who knew and loved this town and its moorlands two hundred years ago.
With guided tours around special buildings as well as outdoor walks and the history of people and places who lived and worked in Haworth over centuries, it offers an insight into life and death in the melee of the Industrial Revolution. Its authors have combined their lifelong interests in Victorian literature and social history with writing, walking, photography, and cartography, and have included quotes from Brontë poetry and novels.
