Haworth is well known throughout the world as the home of the Brontë sisters. It
is less well known as the largest village of the three that make up the ancient
township of Haworth. Here, and in the earlier companion volume, the whole
township is represented in an extensive and wide-ranging collection of old
photographs. A great many of the photographs in this second book are very little
known and will be new to most readers.
In this book readers will find a further 300 photographs of the villages of Haworth,
Oxenhope and Stanbury, of their shops, public houses, farms, quarries, mills,
reservoirs, gas works, roads, bridges and railways.
