The Brontë sisters were born in Thornton near Bradford, but wrote most of their novels while living at the Haworth Parsonage which is now a museum owned and maintained by the Brontë Society, when their father was the parson at the Church of St. Michael and All Angels. In the 19th century, the town and surrounding settlements were largely industrialized, which put it at odds with the popular portrayal in Wuthering Heights, which only bore resemblance to the upper moorland that Emily Brontë was accustomed to.

A very pleasant reminder of the afternoon we spent at Haworth a few years ago. It is quite a steep climb up that hill, well it was for older folks like us!
John Prior: Yes not a very hot day, I find that helps smile
The hardware structureof this small town is very worthwhile ... Just find the essential tourist nail varnish and glitz unfortunate ... But then I'm an old school socialist.
John Prior: Full of charm worth milking - tourism rules
Beautiful medieval street! Perfectly shot!
Have a nice day.
John Prior: Thanks Dom for the many comments smile
