History

In the summer of 1845, Charlotte Bronte (1816-55) stayed at the vicarage in Hathersage, visiting her old school friend Ellen Nussey. Whilst there she met the Eyre family and saw their ancestral home, North Lees Hall, where a mad woman had once been kept in an upper room, this providing inspiration for Charlotte Bronte’s first and most famous novel, Jane Eyre (1847). Many places in the novel have been identified with real places in the area such as North Lees Hall being Mr Rochester’s Thornfield Hall, and Hathersage being the village of Morton.
