Home of 3 great literary sisters Aug 15, 2010
Haworth is situated in Bradford Metropolitan District but, as seen by visitors, it seems far more like a large village in the Pennine hills of Yorkshire.

The Parsonage was built in the late 18th century but Rev. Patrick Bronte and his family moved there in 1820. The members of the family who are most noted and whose life and works are emphasised in the museum were the three literary sisters, Anne, Emily and Charlotte Bronte. They played a major part in the history of British literature, writing a a time when it was NOT DONE for women to write novels, still less novels in which women were allowed to feel and exhibit sexual passion. For a time they wrote under men's names!

The museum shows the places where they wrote as well as period furniture, photos and writings.
