 Introduction 

This work is both a literary, and a pictorial account of the life of Anne Brontë, with a particular focus on her connections with the seaside resort of Scarborough; a place she loved; a place she portrayed in both her novels - Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall; a place where she wished to open her own school, and the place where she ultimately died and was buried. In 1897, a journalist declared 'It is impossible to stand by the tomb of the authoress of "Agnes Grey" and "The Tenant" without becoming possessed of a great yearning to know more about her'; and it was this sentiment, coupled with the knowledge of the hundreds of people who visit Anne's grave at Scarborough each year, that inspired me to create this web-site. The links below will take you to a range of pages - covering various aspects of Anne, her life, and her achievements.
