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.

This is a fantastic book for people planning a visit to Haworth and the surrounding area, but also for anybody who loves the Brontës and wants to learn more about their time and lives in a visual and tangible way. It will inspire readers to visit (even if it is only with their imagination) the landscapes and the streets the sister walked, and will help them understand better what makes their voices so haunting and distinct. This book is also a beautiful gift to walkers and historians who want to learn more about this time and area in an engaging and enjoyable way.

A beautifully illustrated guide to the areas of Yorkshire in which the Brontes lived and worked.

Books Monthly

I can't praise this wonderful guidebook highly enough. The authors have created a 'must-have' guide to all things Haworth and Bronte, from history and biography to step-by-step maps and guides to Haworth and the moors that the Brontes knew so well... I would call it a companion, a friend to take with you as you explore Bronte Country. It is obvious that Rayner and Walkford have a deep knowledge and an abiding love of their subject matter, and they have done an outstanding job of bringing that knowledge and love to life in a very readable, extremely enjoyable way.
