If you visit Shibden Hall these days you could find some dresses seen at To Walk Invisible:
@ShibdenHall: Our 'As Seen on TV' exhibition features three of the costumes designed by Tom Pye for the film. They were kindly loaned to us by our friends  at the Brontë Parsonage. Tom Pye designed Charlotte Brontë's (played by Finn Atkins) dress to appear very business like, referencing masculine business attire from that period.
We've also got the fabulous 'Thackeray dress' on display in our Fashion Gallery. It is a garment worn by Charlotte Brontë to meet with writer William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863). Also a loan from the wonderful Brontë Parsonage.
