A Yorkshire Weekend - Haworth 6/6

So to the main reason a lot of people visit Haworth.  This is the Parsonage to which Emily, Anne and Charlotte Bronte came to live with their brother and father when the latter took over as the minister at St.Michael and All Angels Church next door.

Between them the sisters wrote books such as Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, Shirley, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Villette, most of which are still very popular to read in modern times, and which have been turned in to films and plays.

The house is open to the public and there is a museum attached also, details can be found at http://www.bronte.info/

Brian Walbey: I bet the house could tell a few stories Tony, no pun intended smile

Which of them is the one peering out at me from the window, bottom right?

Lovely stuff, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. You've got eyes like a hawk.
Nice photo, Brian.
Very big and imposing parsonage, but I suppose with a family like that it needed to be big. And this was the age of elegance, and elegance needs space.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila. They didn't have far to walk to the church, this was taken from inside the graveyard looking over the wall.
Well I never Brian, this is the first time I have seen it.
Brian Walbey: Quite an imposing building Chad, although we didn't go inside.
What a lovely place Brian. Fine capture!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.
How lovely to see their home,Wuthering Heights has got to be my most favourite, Nice shot of their grand house.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Linda.
That's a very special house Brian. Such a lot of literary history there. Is that a later extension on the end?
Brian Walbey: I'm not sure if that is an extension Janet, if it is then it fits very well.
I've read Wuthering Heights, Shirley and Jane Eyre. Also, I agree with Sheila... Love your click!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Kavita.

Well, I can't recall seeing an image of this before, brian, so thanks for posting it.
Brian Walbey: No I don't think I have seen one on SC. Thanks for your comment Alan.
Your very fortunate to get to these places Brian. The house must be very interesting inside. Joanie would like this.I like your framing too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron. We decided not to go inside, like all coach outings there is never enough time, we went for a magnificent cream tea instead smile
I've never seen this before, what a lovely house. My sister named her youngest daughter Bronte after becoming smitten with Emily's Wuthering Heights. The G10's strong colours are on top of this again, super shot with a great POV. This is on my hit list for next year without a doubt, is photography allowed inside Brian??
Brian Walbey: I'm getting some good comments from you people about the G10 Dave, I'm pleased with it so far. I don't know about taking photos inside here as we decided not to go in, we went for a huge cream tea instead smile
very nice
like the people in the doorway
Like it
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Rob.

Seen this place several times but never been in. Maybe some time in the future perhaps.
Brian Walbey: I'm sure it is worth going in Les if time allows.
