Lovely little street with some very interesting shops but for me the real highlight was finding the family home of Elizabeth and Maria Branwell, aunt and mother of the Bronte sisters.

This once quaint street with its connections to the Bronte family has rushed into the modern world. Not nice!

I enjoyed my walk down this street. It has some unusual quirky shops. I had a rummage through some of the antiques shops. Love the egyptian house architecture. Some old pubs down here too although I didn't go in them.
