Free use Bronte resources updated

I have a great many photos illustrating some of the Brontes novels or poetry ,or from events at the Parsonage and of the surronding area  that I used for my past work  and I thought it would be nice to share them.This page also includes copyright free images collected during my research .I have added links to  free to read online Bronte biographies, poetry and stories .Theres a slideshow of more images but heres a few recent ones not in it.I thought the photos of my replica Emilys writing desk etc might be useful for bloggers who wanted to avoid copyright issues with other images

This is Bronte Falls ,as with the other images the person in the photograph is me and I give permisson for it and any others of me to be used for any non commercial purpose

charlottoe graveyard

An old  path which looks like a old road ,which I call the greenway it goes to the top of Lumb Beck and then to Oldfeild I am fairly sure the Brontes must have used it as its a route from Haworth to  Oldfeild ,that also crosses Sladen Beck at a pack horse bridge ,which I think may have been the only crossing before the road was builtsnow in Bronte country 17 33

This was from a Mrs Bronte event ,it celebrate Patrick and Maria Brontes wedding anniversary I think it was in 2013


Bronte moorsMe again with quite a pretty photo of the School,I will include a few photos with the school ,parsonage etc as backdrops because we took most from angles that would obscure any modern signs etc

Another Bikes shot

wuthering bikes

Kathy Pondon ,I am a litttle bit unsure of the fashion timeline for Wuthering Heights if the location is taken into account as fashion in a remote part of Yorkshire might have lagged behind or been different ,but this would have been the “sunday best ” of a lady at a hall in the south.The resevoir at Pondon is post Victorian
