Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

This is part of the ruin of Wycoller Hall, a sizeable 16th century house.

It was once a splendid building and is reputed to be the inspiration for Ferndean Manor in Charlotte Bront's novel 'Jane Eyre'.
The Bronts lived in the nearby village of Haworth, and the family probably visited Wycoller on their frequent walks.

The house more recently neglected and fell into disrepair and, as often happens with abandoned buildings, stone was 'borrowed to repair or improve nearby buildings.

The ruin is now protected and features, like this beautiful fireplace can still be admired.

In my workshop, you will be able to see a slightly different view.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)
The first Ukrainian Family has just arrived in our village. The mother and father seem to be coping surprising well but their young daughter is completely overwhelmed by it all. I hope she is soon able to recover from the trauma she has experienced!
