Back in the time of the Brontes this was the druggist's store where Branwell Bronte is believed to have purchased his laudanum, an opium based narcotic which was popular as a painkiller (and which was also used as a "recreational" drug too). This 1840s druggist's store was recreated recently (along with other buildings in the village) for the filming of a BBC drama called "To Walk Invisible" (pictured above, bottom row).

Today the building has a beautifully restored vintage styled interior serving well its latest incarnation as the "Cabinet of Curiosities" - home of The Curiosity Society.
