The World of the Brontes

by PaulBarker (Photographer), JamesBirdsall (Author)


This photographic tour of Bronte country, takes in the places and buildings that are associated with the family and their literature. From Haworth and its parsonage; to Scarborough, where Anne is buried; to the school at Cowan Bridge in Lonsdale, where the Brontes were pupils; to Thornton, where Reverend Bronte was vicar before Haworth; to Stone Gap, the house featured in Jane Eyre and where Charlotte was governess; to the ruins of the hall in Lancashire, that was the model for Rochester's mansion; and the White Swan pub at Luddenden, whose library was used by Branwell. The book suggests a Bronte trail to follow and contains extracts from the prose and poetry of the family.
