20th century photographs by Fay Godwin of Howarth Parsonage, home of the Brontës, and Top Withens
Fay Godwin’s atmospheric black and white photographs of Haworth Parsonage and Top Withens are from her book Remains of Elmet, first published in 1979 and accompanied by poems by Ted Hughes. Howarth Parsonage was the home of the Brontë sisters; nearby Top Withens, a ruined farmhouse located on the Pennine moors, is thought to have inspired Emily Brontë’s novel Wuthering Heights (1847).
