An Excursion with the Brontes to Bolton Abbey

In September 1833 the Brontes made a day trip from their home in Haworth in what is now known as West Yorkshire's Bronte Country to Bolton Abbey in the nearby Yorkshire Dales.

This excursion, which was organised by Branwell Bronte, was described by Ellen Nussey (a close friend of Charlotte Bronte), and her account of the visit is included (along with a reproduction of a drawing by Charlotte Bronte of Bolton Abbey) in a book entitled "The Yorkshire Dales: A View from the Millennium".
