Gyles Brandreth travels to Brontë Country in West Yorkshire.

Authors Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë were shaped by the Yorkshire moors, where they spent most of their lives. In turn, the writers have also helped to shape the region themselves – Haworth was once an industrial town but
now it’s best known as the home of the famous sisters and has become a magnet for tourists. Gyles Brandreth visits Haworth Parsonage, which has been turned into a Brontë museum, to learn more about the siblings’ lives. He also finds the locations that reportedly inspired their novels, including Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall. (Kevin Courtney)
