The Brontë Parsonage Museum at Haworth said its figures were still being finalised, but that there had been a slight fall in visitors.President of the Brontë Society Bonnie Greer has been appointed to the Authors' Licensing and Collecting Society (ALCS) for a one-year term according to this press release.
"The first half of the year in particular was down a little," said a spokesman.
"We moved our admissions desk at the beginning of the year which meant we opened three weeks later than normal for the new season, so we started off on the back foot and were then playing catch up.
"Things picked up in the second half of the year and we anticipate that our admissions income will slightly exceed budget.
"The relocation of the admissions desk was a big improvement and also we've seen a significant increase in gift aid."
The museum opens for the new season on February 1. (Alistair Shand)
