This light-hearted but deeply researched book offers interest and guidance to walkers, social historians and lovers of the Bronte family; their lives and works. Set in and around the town of Haworth it gives a dual introduction to walkers and lovers of literature who can explore this unique area of Yorkshire and walk in the footsteps of those who knew and loved this town and its moorlands two hundred years ago. With guided tours around special buildings as well as outdoor walks and the history of people and places who lived and worked in Haworth over centuries, it offers an insight into life and death in the melee of the Industrial Revolution. Its joint authors have combined their lifelong interests in Victorian literature and social history with writing, walking, photography and cartography and have included quotes from Bronte poetry and novels. AUTHOR: Catherine Rayner M.A. was a lecturer in Victorian literature and is a life-member and trustee of The Bronte Society. She is a qualified nurse who has studied social history from a medical perspective. She has written two further books on the Bronte family, a social history reader for undergraduates and articles for academic journals. Colour Illustrations, photographs and maps throughout
