As a member of the hospitality team at St.Mary's Church, Scarborough, which keeps the Church open for visitors during the week (May to September), one of the most frequently asked questions we are asked is where exactly Anne is buried in our churchyard. We will be happy to promote the memory of Anne and will consider any suitable suggestions.

fascinating and sad story of the Brontes

Thank you for such a brilliant site. I have had a copy of 'Tenant' on my bookshelf for ages but have only just got around to reading it. It is mind blowing and far surpasses her sisters' work. Her insight into human behaviour is amazing and as a Psychology undergraduate I wanted to know more about this amazing author. Your site has answered so many questions I had about her. Can't wait to read 'Agnes'! Thanks again.

I have always been facinated by the whole history of the bronte family and the people and the places associated with them. My wife and I both recently visited haworth. We found the whole experiance very enlightening and enjoyable. I would like to take this opportunity in saying how much I have thoroughly enjoyed this website on the brontes.

Whenever I visit Scarborough I try to make time to sit by Anne's grave. It is such a tranquil place with the view out over the beach and sea. I thought it was time I found out more about Anne and how she came to rest so far from home at Howarth. I have just spent a very pleasant hour just scratching the surface of Anne's story and will be back for more. Thank you Mr Armitage for your time and inspiration. Thank you Anne for your genius and gentle spirit. Bryan Moiser, East Yorkshire.

I think this is the best website on the Brontes by far. It is very hard to come across anything on Anne as not much is known about her compared to Charlotte and Emily. Mr Armitage has dedicated much of his time and effort into this website and it has certainly paid off. This is a beautiful site, well laid out, easy to use and full of important and relevant information. This is a great memorial to our "dear Anne." Long live Anne!

I have enjoyed the writings of Anne Bronte and they have been of great use in my own writings.

Dear Mick,

Your site is wonderful!

My love of Jane Eyre led me to Charlotte Bronte; and then to the Bronte Group. Now, you've successfully piqued my interest for Anne... One day, and 40 pages, into "The Tenant..." has me already enjoying it very much! I suppose poetry can't be far off.

Of the three sisters, I have always had a soft spot for Anne. I have thoroughly enjoyed exploring your very extensive (and user-friendly site) and will, no doubt, return to it again. It is quite some time since I last visited Anne's grave and I think it is time I made the trip again. Thanks for a terrific site on my favourite Bronte.

Anne's books... Full of strong passions, rude pages rich in history, deep in mistery: a very good site for a more good writer! You bet it is.

Saluti dall' Italia!!!

Anne Bronte - in my opinion one of the three best writers ever, Anne, Emily and Charlotte. Excellent Books.

Thank you for a fascinating tour of Thorp Green it was so interesting and refreshing. And to see the Bronte sketches by the side of the views as they are today was wonderful. I'm so glad you 'broke' into the school and that you've recovered from your nettle stings.

Have just found this site - it's very good. I used to live in Scarborough and have visited many of the places Anne loved. I am a fan of the Brontes and am interested in any aspects of their lives.

I had been looking for some book or piece of literature for my critical analysis paper. My teacher recomended the Bronte Sisters. I have chosen Anne's last poem.

Dear Michael,

Your site gives me great pleasure.
The Brontes were such a fascinating family and their sadness and sometimes happiness spills over into their work. Visiting their home one can feel an affinity. I love it. I feel they were sometimes frustrated but overcame it and left us such great stories. You have created a lovely site and tribute to those ladies.


Betty Lucking.

This is the first contribution I have made to this message board. (Christmas Day). I think Anne is the most 'normal' of the three sisters. She may not have had the genius (?) of her sisters but I feel that her writings show a lot of humanity; possibly because she might not have been touched by the death of her mother which she would not have been able to remember. I would be interested to hear other peoples's opinion on this.

The whole journey through life and creation of Anne Bronte was fascinating. I am just in the middle of "Agnes Grey" book reading and something "forced" me to look for Anne in the internet. Now, I hope to visit Scarborough one day. It must be something extremely special about Anne Bronte, that so many people are intersted in her, much more, than in her undoubtly more famous sisters. Thank you very much, that was a real feast.
