Where it all started

Where it all started: above, Haworth Parsonage, and, below, the parsonage dining room. Here, in the evening, the Brontë sisters would walk around the table, discussing their work. The image comes from a lavishly illustrated book about the family’s life, which includes photos of the locations associated with the sisters’ novels: The Brontës at Haworth by Ann Dinsdale (Frances Lincoln, £20 (£18); 0-7112-2572-9)
