Jane Eyre movie, Bronte's house in Haworth, and the moors...

Today Leona, Helen and I went to see the new movie, Jane Eyre, starring Mia Wasikowska.
It was very well done, and for two hours we were swept away to Victorian England in the 1800's, set in a bleak stone house in the middle of the barren Yorkshire moors.
This is one of my all time favourite stories, written by Charlotte Bronte.

In July 2007 I visited the Brontes home, where Jane Eyre was written.
Here I am on the front steps. This was a dream come true for me.
Alas, we weren't allowed to take photos inside.

Here is the view from the front porch; please click on photos to see a much larger view.
The church is in the distance with the graveyard before that, and the school where Charlotte taught for a time is to the left.

The school.

Me in the graveyard. Did I ever mention that I simply love graveyards?
This one was especially exeptional!

A beautiful view of the Yorkshire moors and the stone houses with the stone fences.
I fell in love with this place.

Robert and Matthew walking down Haworth's main street.

Yet another view of the fascinating graveyard.

The Bronte family are buried inside the church.

Me on the steps of our fantastic bed and breakfast, only a few steps from the Bronte house.
Aitches Guest House was a delight to stay in and the breakfasts were scrumptious!
