ACTRESS Sarah Lancashire has lent her support to a campaign to bring home one of Charlotte Bronte’s ‘Little Books’.

Sarah, who played Nelly Dean in a 2009 TV adaptation of Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights, visited the Bronte Parsonage Museum this month to find out about the campaign.

The museum, which already has most of the surviving Little Books, has launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise the expected £650,000 asking price when the book is auctioned in Paris this month.

With 11 days to go the appeal had reached third of its target, with the Brontë Society hoping to raise enough to make a competitive bid. The museum already has most of the surviving books, miniature childhood diaries written by Charlotte.

Sarah said: “These little books are a unique insight into the 14-year-old Charlotte and to be privy to their content feels so intimate and such a privilege.   The little book coming up for auction in Paris belongs here in Haworth and I ask everyone who can to support the campaign to bring it home.”
