I took this one walking back down the hill to the station, which is now a heritage line running a limited number of trains a day. 

I can recommend the train, but it gave me a false sense of how connected Haworth was to the wider world in the Brontes' time. Although Branwell had ideas of investing in the railway they came to nothing and the line wasn't built until the 1860s. It closed 100 years later. The house itself is well worth a visit, and we did the trip in a day from London - a long day, leaving Kings Cross at 7am and back by 11, but that also allowed us to see Saltaire and a bit of Leeds. 

Apparently there's a beautiful cafe in this town hall but we were just too late for it. Another time.
