Yorkshire has given birth to many famous sons and daughters. Perhaps three of our most well-known and much loved literary stars were the Bronte sisters. Sadly they all died at a young age but not before leaving us such stories as Jane Eyre written by Charlotte, Wuthering Heights by Emily and The Tennant of Wildfell Hall by Anne.
I’m now able to bring you to the graveside of Anne as I was asked to draw this picture by the Scarborough branch of The Bronte Society for their fund-raising.
I’d love to take you further up the coast to Whitby and Robin Hood’s Bay, but I didn’t draw any pictures of these places back in the 1970s and 80s. I’ll have to take you inland instead and away from the sea. Perhaps I ought to sharpen my pencils and try to pick up where I left off back then; if I did, I doubt whether the finished results would contain as much details as my old drawings.
