Her Royal Highness visited the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth, which reopened recently following a period of conservation work and preparations for the bicentenary of Emily Brontë. This year marks the 90th anniversary of the Museum in Haworth Parsonage, the house where the Brontës spent most of their lives and wrote their great novels.
During 2017, over 10,000 visitors participated in Clare Twomey’s Wuthering Heights – A Manuscript project, which set out to create a new version of Emily Brontë’s long-lost manuscript by copying it out one line at a time.
Her Royal Highness met Clare Twomey during her visit before writing the last line of Wuthering Heights into the newly created manuscript in the very house where Emily wrote the original.
During her visit, Her Royal Highness was guided through the historic rooms of the Parsonage by Principal Curator, Ann Dinsdale and had a close-up viewing of some of the ‘treasures’ relating to Emily Brontë in the museum library.
