Description

The picturesque village of Haworth in West Yorkshire is known worldwide for its association with the Bronte family, who had their home here. A windswept land of heather and wild moors, it is hardly surprising that this region became the inspirisation for the classic works of the Bronte sisters. Haworth itself, however, is a fascinating village in its own right and richly repays time devoted to a study of its intriguing past. This book traces the history of the village, looking at its former farming, textile and stone quarrying industries, its house's, shops and inns, reservoirs and gasworks, and explorers some of the popular beliefs of the nineteenth century - including a cure for cattle afflicted by a witch's curse - and some less well-known aspects of the Brontes' connections with Haworth. The book will delight residents and visitors to Haworth with its fresh approach to the history of the village. Steven Wood is a respected local historian who lives in the village and has researched its history for nearly thirty years.
