Happy 200th Birthday Branwell Bronte; June 16th, 1817.
We were fortunate enough to be able to have a celebratory breakfast in the room where Charlotte, Emily, Anne and Branwell Bronte were actually born. Many years ago we visited the place and at that time it was the home of a novelist. She was happy to take us on a tour of the small house in Thornton where Rev Bronte was an assistant minister. This was before the family moved to Haworth.
A pot of Darjeeling came with its own timer!

We were served some delicious pastries
The place was being painted.

A late lunch in Wetherspoon’s pub in Brighouse. Originally this was a Methodist chapel, and the organ and pews in the balcony are preserved.
I had to sample this beer – in honour of all the Bobs in my life!

Instead of ‘designer Zales’ we found ‘designer bales’ just outside Mytholmroyd.
