Walking from Thornton to Bradford.

My proposal to South Square Centre’s ‘The Most Beautiful Things Cannot Be Seen’ exhibition has been accepted and so a week last Friday I visited the gallery in Thornton. I decided not to wait for the bus to get back to the train station in Bradford and instead walked down the B6145 from Thornton to Bradford, passing the Brontë birthplace on the way . A marker plaque records that ‘In This House Were Born The Following Members of the Brontë Family, Charlotte 1816, Patrick Branwell 1817, Emily Jane 1818, Anne 1820’. Haworth and the Brontë parsonage (where the family lived from 1820) is about 6 miles north-west of Thornton.
