A reconstruction of 1840s Haworth

Reconstruction of Haworth main street as it would have looked in the 1840s Reconstruction of Haworth main street as it would have looked in the 1840s

In early June 2016 the village of Haworth was taken back to the 1840s for the filming of a BBC drama called "To Walk Invisible".

Reconstruction of Haworth's apothecary as it would have looked in the 1840s Reconstruction of Haworth's Black Bull as it would have looked in the 1840s

Besides the crew building a recreation of the parsonage on Penistone Hill the village's main street was transformed for the filming, with buildings being fronted to look as they may well have done at the time. At the top of the main street the apothecary and the Black Bull (both of which were frequented by Branwell Bronte and played a role in his demise) were given an 1840s "makeunder", with the finished results looking very convincing indeed !
