 The Telegraph and Argus reports that 
A church in Oxenhope is celebrating after receiving £10,000 from the Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust for urgent roof repair works.
St Mary the Virgin is a Grade II listed church, with links to the Brontës and it was was granted the funding at a recent committee which saw more than £50,000 allocated to ten of the region’s most vulnerable places of worship. (Jo Winrow)
Robert and Louise Barnard's A Brontë Encyclopedia has some more info on those Brontë links:
Oxenhope: two miles south of Haworth, part of Patrick's parish until 1849. Joseph Grant was curate there from 1845, under Patrick, and incumbent after 1849. [...] Arthur Bell Nicholls read one of the lessons at the consecration of the church dedicated to St Mary the Virgin (Oct 1849).
The blunder of the day comes from an article on the filming of The Railway Children Return on Film News.
The sequel, slated for release next year, will shoot at locations across the UK, including the iconic Keighley & Worth Valley Railway from the original adaptation as well as Oakworth Station in Haworth in West Yorkshire and the Brontë Passage.
RexWeyler ranks 'All Wuthering Heights Adaptations, Ranked (According To IMDb)'. Milenio (Mexico) recommends Agnes Grey among other novels.
