The documentary is being made by Oxenhope resident Oliver Chapman and will present the outcome of research carried out by Ian Howard and Josh Chapman, who is Oliver’s brother.
Mr Howard, who is also from Oxenhope, said that a local theatre group and a school had come forward to take part in the Haworth tour and ultimately be featured in the documentary itself.
“The tour will be filmed as part of the documentary we’re making, so everyone should be prepared for the footage to be used on television,” he said.
He said that he did not require very many more people for the tour, though he added that a small number of additional individuals who were willing to participate could still be accommodate.

Crimson Peak (October 16, 2015)Style has an article on magazine editor Isabella Blow and recalls that,
Easily my own most anticipated horror film of 2015, Crimson Peak offers the prospect of a genre master attempting to summon some of the decadent dread of a bygone era. With a premise that could be pulling just as much from the writings of either Brontë sister as it could be from pulp magazines, Crimson Peak stands poised to be Guillermo del Toro’s ode to the gothic literature that birthed modern horror.

There she will discover Sir Thomas’ macabre past, his mysterious sister Lady Lucille (Jessica Chastain), and with any luck, the stuff of eternal nightmares. (David Crow)
