Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

There was an atmospheric mist in Wycoller Dene when we went walking here, at the weekend. Occasionally, the sun broke through, filling the scene with a sense of mystery.

This shot shows the ruins of Wycoller Hall, a 16th century manor house. It was an extensive building and, being so close to Haworth, is thought to be the inspiration for Charlotte Bronte's Ferndean Manor, in Jane Eyre. Due to debts, the house became unoccupied by the early 20th century and, as often happens, valuable stone was taken from the building to create or repair other buildings and walls. There is a lot of very interesting information about Wycoller in this Internet Link which was created by 'The Friends of Wycoller'.

This shot shows the view towards the hall over the cobbled ford which crosses Wycoller Beck. To the left of the view, there is an ancient pack horse bridge seen here from a previous photograph.

Thank you for stopping by.
Have a great day, Bev :-)
