|The wording on the gravestone reads:
Anne's grave is situated in St. Mary's Churchyard - just beneath the castle walls: it is maintained by the Brontë Society. Behind and to the right of the photographer are captivating views of Scarborough's South Bay, and the sands - where Anne loved to walk.
|In this painting by J.W.Williams, produced around
the turn of the century, Anne's grave is the one directly above the white
asterisk (bottom of picture). Beyond it can be seen 'Castle Hill' - the
route taken, in Anne's novel, by Agnes Grey and Edward Weston as they make
their way to edge of the precipice (at the far side of the castle grounds),
where they stood 'watching the splendid sunset
mirrored in the restless world of waters at our feet'.
(Direction of views on map: lower left towards upper right.)
N.B: In reality, the 'hill', rising to the castle entrance, and beyond, is not quite as steep as it appears in this painting.
