Haworth moves forward from the 1940s to the 1840s

Bronte Haworth Sally Wainwright To Walk Invisible Yorkshire

On a fabulous bright Monday morning on Haworth Main Street, the first activity of the day was to take down the bunting used in the 1940s weekend.

Within half an hour, the BBC bring down the first of the signs to promote the building of the set on Main Street for the depiction of life in the 1840s (it really wasn't planned that way!).

The TV film drama by Sally Wainwright is based on the lives of the Brontë family around the time that the sisters wrote their famous novels.

This week and next (Spring Bank half term holiday) sees the street being reverted to look as it did when Charlotte, Anne and Emily Brontë skipped down the street (and climbed back up again).

All businesses on the street are open as usual, but with added excitement that already exists!

Do come and visit and see the already fabulous Haworth Main Street in 2016, as well as a glimpse of life nearly 200 years ago AND watch how a film set is created.

The film is due to be screened this Christmas.

    Will that include the open drain that used to run down the middle?
