200 year anniversary of the birth of Charlotte Brontë

Charlotte Brontë was born on the 21st of April 1816 in Thornton, West Bradford, to the Rev. Patrick Brontë and his wife Maria. Charlotte Bronte

As children, she and her sisters attended school in Leck, which is a 5 minute drive from Kirkby Lonsdale. It is known that the school Charlotte refers to in her novel Jane Eyre is this very school.

We are privileged to be teaming up with Leck Gallery on the 21st April 2016 to celebrate Charlotte’s birthday, during which you are able to visit the school house attended by the Brontë girls. Please click here to read more about it!
