Published in 1849, Charlotte Brontë's novel Shirley caused quite a sensation. Local people had only just discovered that the quiet visitor from Haworth, parson's daughter Charlotte Brontë, was secretly the famous ‘Currer Bell', author of Jane Eyre. Now they found themselves and their neighbours appearing in her latest novel.
Charlotte knew the area well from her schooldays in Mirfield and was a frequent visitor, staying with her lifelong friends Ellen Nussey of Birstall and Mary Taylor of Gomersal. When Charlotte's parents were first married they lived in nearby Hightown and her father was minister at Hartshead at the time of the Luddite riots of 1812.
Beautiful Red House in Gomersal (Mary Taylors home), the Elizabethan manor house of Oakwell Hall (featured in Shirley) and Dewsbury Minster are today open to the public and should not be missed.
