About Us

The Brontë Stones are a group of stones placed in the landscape between the birthplace of the Brontë family in Thornton and the parsonage, where they wrote their famous work in Haworth.

The project was devised by Michael Stewart and the Bradford Literature Festival along with the help of local Brontë literature organisations and talented artists and writers and funding from the Arts Council England. 

The Stones

The Brontë Stones project features four new, original works of writing, engraved onto stones and placed into beautiful locations between the Brontë sisters’ birthplace in Thornton and the Brontë family parsonage at Haworth. 

The Walks

Each one of the beautifully hand carved stones take you on a journey across areas of Yorkshire that were prominent in the lives of the three Brontë sisters.

 

Michael planned four walks that take you across Yorkshire to each of the four stones.

The Maps

Yorkshire Cartographer Chris Goddard was commissioned to create four beautiful maps for each of the four walks.

 

The hand-drawn maps are the perfect guide to all of the stones, and the perfect keepsake for remembering your adventure.
