Anne Bronté moved from inland Haworth to the seaside to try to ease the symptoms of her TB as many did in her days, but of course she didn't live long once she had caught the dreaded discease and died here too. There is a nice view from the bench next to her grave. A perfect place for contemplation and a must if you are in any way interersted in classical literature.

Address: Castle Road
Directions: In St Mary's Cemetary on the way to the castle.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
