Although it was a rainy weekday, the village and the Parsonage were really quite busy and crowded - but I shouldn't complain as it has to be good that so many people are interested in the Brontes.
The cobbled, steep, hilltop village is rather lovely, but very much given over to the tourist and Bronte theme, and also spoilt I thought by every pub / eatery (there are 4 at least, within yards of each other) having far too many loud, garish signs announcing their special offers etc.
There were some attractive, quaint shop windows here and there though:
|This was the window (and sign, below) for Weavers restaurant - nicely understated!|
Down the hill there were 2 large and wonderful secondhand bookshops - pleasingly named
