The Bronte Museum at the Haworth Parsonage, as seen from the graveyard
The back of the card says: “The old parsonage, which was the home of the Bronte family from 1820, is now a museum containing many relics of the famous sisters. It was buit in 1779 of the local gray stone, a typical late-Georgian house.”
The BBC reports that “30,000 people are believed to have been interred in Haworth churchyard. Today this may be a romantic place but, in the Bronte’s time, methods of burial here contributed to a death rate which was estimated to be over 40% higher than in neighboring villages. The village water supply passed through the graveyard.”
No wonder those girls were morbid.
