HAWORTH

The Brontë Sisters lived and wrote most of their novels in the parsonage at Haworth, West Yorkshire. This interior of this building has been meticulous­ly restored to how it looked when these three remarkable young women were publishing novels like Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. Today the village is extremely picturesqu­e and it's difficult to believe that in the Brontës' time it was one of the most polluted places in Britain – one of the reasons the sisters died so young.

The Church of St Michael and All Angels, where

Rev Brontë preached, still broods over High Street and the Black Bull, where his wayward son, Branwell drank away his talent, still stands nearby on Main Street. You can also see the Old School Room where the sisters taught and the Apothecary Shop where Branwell bought his opium.
