St Michael's and All Angels' Church is at the very heart of Haworth village. Patrick Bronte took up a position here in 1815, and it was while living at the adjacent parsonage that his daughters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne wrote their novels. Also adjacent to the church is the Old School Room, which was built win 1832 while Patrick Bronte was incumbent, and where Charlotte Bronte taught.
Although a large part of the church has been rebuilt since the time of the Brontes, the main part of the church tower remains basically unchanged.
Several members of the Bronte family were buried in the crypt of the church, while the celebrated pioneer parachutist Lily Cove is buried in the graveyard outside.
