“Without the Bronte connection, not of great merit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

The attraction of the church is it's connection with the Bronte family, the father having been Pastor there for many years. The Brontes lived in the Parsonage, and there wrote all their tales and poems. Only the bell tower is of the Bronte period, the rest having been rebuilt. It's has classical church architecture, and is built of sombre stone, but otherwise of no great architectural merit. Much more interesting, and certainly more photogenic, is the graveyard, with a terrific mix of variously slanting grave stones, which in late summer sunshine are quite magic

“Peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

How peaceful is this lovely church. The Bronte sisters used to come here and the rest of the family. There are some interesting things to buy, one is a small parcel with a ribbon on and a message that says, this is from me to you but you must never open it because you will not see anything in it but it has my love for you and will always be there when you feel low so keep it safe. What a lovely thing. Proceeds are for the church fund. Worth a visit.

Lovely church where the Bronte's are buried, it is trying to raise money for repairs that are desperately needed. So visit and help it to raise the money to preserve this loverly church

“Atmospheric.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Although not the original church of which the Reverend Patrick Bronte was parson, most of the family are interred within. The relevant family history is well laid out and the surrounding graveyard provides a suitably brooding atmosphere. Well worth a visit.
