Haworth - Bronte Country

November 2016

On our way back from the North Yorkshire Moors we decided to make a short stop over to visit the Bronte Museum – but we were too late. We were, however treated to a candle light carol service which lead along the village main street to the church. This is the shop which as the drug store in the Brontes time. It is now called the Cabinet of Curiosities and it was so pretty and festive  we could not resist taking a look. Below are the amazing delights we found inside and bought as extra Christmas gifts, 


The bright sparkling interior was irresitable.

We bought this soap……………


and this one………………

This is the main street through the village of Haworth where the Bronte sisters and their brother lived.It was decorated in Christmas lights. Somehow we arrived just in time for the Victorian Christmas Carol Parade.   We bought chips from the local chip shop and a couple of barm cakes (soft bread rolls) Yummy ! Ketchup as already in the van!

The Van Plan

Buy a van, (Or two.) Convert to a motor home then explore the UK and Europe, reaching places on the map other van travellers can not reach while enjoying vanlife in comfort.
