This is the best site I have seen regarding the Bronte's and the Scarborough connection. I have just returned from Scarborough and seing the pictures of times gone by are amazing. You have obviously put a lot of time and work into this and I just want you to know it is appreciated.

Having just spent a holiday in Scarborough during which we accidentally came across Anne's grave, I am very grateful to your excellent site for the information it supplies. You have filled in the missing parts of the picture, thanks!

I'm preparing a proposal for a dissertation on The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and I have found this website an excellent starting point for my studies. It is a very comprehensive and informative site. It is lovely to see this amount of space used for a writer who I believe has been sidelined far too often.

I have been to Scarborough and Anne's grave. It was in 1974 and although it was a very special experience for me (since I was a young girl, the Brontes have always been a profoundly inspirational spiritual and creative connection for me), it is only since then that I have understood how deeply I "belong" to this place and Anne’s own love of it (this experience is included in a novel I am writing).

I hope to return one day-it will surely be a pilgrimage! (I lived in Oxfordshire England for 16 years, and the entire northeast coast of England, from Yorkshire northwards, was my happiest travels there). Thank you for your wonderful site!

This is the great site about Bronte sisters...

I was born in China but right now lived in US. I read Bronte sister's "Jane Eyre" and "Wuthering Heights" about 20 years ago, of course in Chinese translated version, at that time not knowig too much about Bronte sisters in details, including the youngest Anne. Just had the little imagnation about old England's life & story...At that time, I was even not knowing too much of English. I was linked to your site because of the song "Scarborough Fair", this song was so beautiful when I first heard in more than 20 years ago, It's always my favorite. Eventually this song leads me always want to search more about the background of this song and this resort city. Now, from your site I knew more about Scarborough and the connection with Bronte's sisters. What a conincidence or what a surprise! All pieces are now gradually put together so I just feel so graceful...from the song back to Chinese version Bronte sister's works, then to their youngest Annie's connection to this city which ultimately is my favorite song echoed about.

Thanks very much and really appreciate your huge efforts on doing this. I will travel to Scarborough on someday, after read "Agnes Grey", this time might be original English works...doesn't matter, can't helping to see Scarborough. Hopefully some kind of fair is still going on there.

Thank you for this lovely site. The Bronte's continue to be a fascination for many of us. My two favorite Bronte novels, "Jane Eyre" and "Agnes Gray", read at age thirteen, still hold a melancholy place in my heart. That heart being sixty now.

About three years ago I stumbled onto Anne Bronte through one of the on-line book sites. I had taken an interest in Victorian women writers after deciding men were incapable of writing convincingly of women's thought processes and emotional excursions. But I found the endings of most of them to be unsatisfying. I tend to believe that pressures from publishers for a certain conformance lay behind this being so.

Long ago I had read Wuthering Heights so I had a foundation regarding the Bronte sisters.After reading Anne Grey with satisfaction, I moved on to Wildfell Hall. What a revelation! An incurable romantic had just received a jolt like breathing from an oxygen bottle! Never mind the dozens of previous novels I had consumed! Wildfell Hall vaulted to the top of my pantheon. The ending encompassing Chapters 51 through 53 is positively ethereal. Anne Bronte is my literary saint.

I've treated myself to reading those three chapters aloud in the evening in the great room by the firelight only and maybe a glass of wine. I can't imagine a better way to be good to myself!

Thanks for this website giving Anne Bronte this recognition of genius she too long has been denied! It's dizzying to me to entertain the thoughs of what further raptures humanity lost upon the end of her too too short life!

What an interesting site. Always been a fan of the Bronte's but more so now. I have been tracing my ancestors and discovered that for quite some years they worked for Mrs Robinson at Thorpe Green Hall. I was totally fascinated by the Tour and now feel I must go and see for myself.

Thank you. Much appreciated. Born in Keighley, 1939. Grew up in Oxenhope, then Hebden Bridge. Then London (university) 1958-61. Have just read "The Tenant of W. H." Spent time in Haworth as a child, staying through the gap in the building right opposite the Bull. (With Tom Wildman & family.) Men's clothier.
My dad was also a friend of Seth Snowdon, green grocer. I lived at the Waggon & Horses above Oxenhope on the Hebden Bridge road, 1947-1950. Loved it. My dad was a joiner, and worked in the Parsonage in the late 1940s, doing the considerable (post-war) renovations.
Thanks again.
Anne is so easy to love.
