The new guidebook for the Brontë Parsonage Museum is now available.

The 48-page volume, available from the museum in Haworth, is the first to be published since 1998.

It was prepared following last year’s major refurbishment of the historic building, and it has been updated to take into account changes to museum displays of the past 15 years.

The new guidebook also includes the findings from recent research into the history of the Parsonage’s furnishings.

The book, from specialist publisher Scala, includes colour pictures of the building past and present, and the back cover features a painting of a bird of prey by Emily Brontë.

The Brontë Parsonage Museum reopened last month following extensive improvements to its shop and entrance foyer.
