In the summer, we revisited Haworth, the home of the  Brontė sisters. If you would love to visit, then you can from the comfort of home. Copy and paste this address into Google Earth: 

Church St, Haworth, West Yorkshire BD22 8DR

Place the man icon over the junction of Main Street and Church Street and West Lane. You should find yourself looking down the main street of Haworth. The church at the top of the street is this:

This is the gate at the end of the parsonage path that led to the church. The family would walk through this gate every Sunday:

It is only though the writing that we can really imagine the lives they led and inhabit the buildings shown here.  Shelagh, you are so lucky to be able to see this in person.  I would not be surprised if a ghost of the Bronte family was watching over.  I prefer to believe it!
Love Betty
