We walked up the very steep cobbled streets which had some lovely shops and cafes to the top where the Bronte museum and church are located and although the inside of the church was closed we were able to walk around the grounds and the old graveyard where there were some information boards which gave details about the Bronte family and their mostly short lives. The life expectancy in the area must have been so low in the past, as many graves are for young children and not many people were over the age of 30. There is also a Sunday School nearby which the father Patrick established and where Charlotte Bronte taught. Amazingly Patrick outlived all his children by many years and died at the grand age of 84. The buildings look in good condition from the outside and create a peaceful, past atmosphere. We weren't particularly interested in the history of the Brontes prior to visiting Haworth village, but having had a walk around the area we'll definitely come back and book tickets to go inside the Parsonage, which we just saw a glimpse of from the outside. We hadn't prebooked and there were no last minute slots available but it will give us a good reason to return to this lovely place.

The Haworth Parish Church of England is another iconic monument for Bronte pilgrims. It is where all the Brontes sleep, except for Anne. The original building was re-built in the 1880s after Rev Patrick Bronte died. The existing church is the newly built one. The stained glass windows depicting biblical tales are beautiful. The plaque in memory of Curate William Weightman made me cry. If Anne had accepted him, perhaps he would not have been so zealous in his work with the patients of cholera, dying of the same disease at only 26. The church is both heartbreaking and a symbol of hope. The Bronte siblings died young one by one, and were survived by their frail, aged father, but their literature is eternal. I especially liked the installation drawing attention of visitors to the condition of excessive vomitting that claimed Charlotte's life, along with those of thousands of women, and also crippled the Duchess of Cambridge in the early months of all her pregnancies. The church needs time to take in all the details and history. One needs two days for Haworth, to fully experience the church, the Parsonage and the moors.

A visit to the church in Haworth is always welcome. A lovely peaceful place with lots of history. The display boards are very informative but I was a little disappointed to read only the names of Charlotte, Emily and Anne. Yes- they are the most well known, perhaps, but Branwell was certainly well known in Haworth and the two eldest girls, Maria and Elizabeth died there.
