The Rydings

Charlotte Bronte (along with brother Branwell) visited her friend Ellen Nussey at her home "The Ridings" in Birstall in September 1832.

Ellen Nussey later moved to Brookroyd House where Charlotte visited her many times.

Today the Rydings is on private land within an industrial complex, but the exterior is little changed since the days of the Brontes.
