This is a capture of a wonderful old shop called Rose & Co Apothecary, which is in Haworth, situated above the Worth Valley amid the bleak Pennine moors, is internationally famous for its connection with the Brontë sisters, who were born in Thornton, but wrote most of their famous novels while living at the Haworth Parsonage (which is now a museum owned and maintained by the Brontë Society), when their father was the parson at the adjacent Church of St. Michael and All Angels. In the 19th century, the town and surrounding settlements were largely industrialized, which put it at odds with the popular portrayal in Wuthering Heights, which only bore resemblance to the upper moorland that Emily Brontë was accustomed to.
The shop has the most wonderful things, and they
sell beautiful cakes of soap and bath bombs that look just like real cakes you could spend hours in there. I have added a shot of some of the soaps under this narrative.
Thank you for looking
