Work begins to repair and replace Haworth setts
9:17pm Sunday 10th March 2013 in Keighley
Work has begun on relaying and repairing stone setts close to the Brontes’ former home.
The scheme in Church Street, Haworth, situated by the Parsonage Museum, is expected to take about three weeks to complete.
The street has been shut to through traffic but the contractors, who are working for Bradford Council, aim to reopen it at weekends.
Residents with a permit to park in Church Street are able to use the museum car park.
Councillor Val Slater, the council’s executive member for planning, transport and highways, said: “Haworth attracts visitors from across the world thanks to its special character and links to the Bronte sisters.
“This work should make the area between Main Street, the church and the Parsonage even more appealing and will, together with improvements to other parts of Main Street, benefit the village for years to come.”
