New Bronte Guide Download

The Keighley News and The Bronte Blog are linking a NEW downloadable pamphlet of the Bronte country that inspired the sisters and their novels. I love this - immediate and instant gratification to satisfy your Bronte thirst, and it's free!

This is the press release about the pamphlet, also in PDF format. And the official Pennine Yorkshire Site.


  1. Wow, what a treat! I loved browsing this pamphlet, so thanks so much for uploading dearie. One of my favorite things about the Brontes is that they used the landscapes and places around them to such an extent it's like walking in their novels. I have yet to visit England, but you've whetted my appetite for it. Oh, and did you notice a place was named Thornton? Reminded me of Mr. Thornton, the mill owner in Elizabeth Gaskell's "North and South." She was acquainted with the area as well. :)

  2. I also enjoyed the pamphlet - it made me feel as if I were there seeing it, well almost!

    The Brontes' are fascinating on many levels, and I agree with you, they put their surroundings and very lives into each page of their novels.

    I've been to England twice, but never made it to Yorkshire. I would really love to go back one day and see it. I hope you get to go one day.

    I love N&S!
