Description

The Leeds and Skipton railway runs along a deep valley of the Aire; a slow and sluggish stream, compared to the neighbouring river of Wharfe. Keighley station is on this line of railway, about a quarter of a mile from the town of the same name. The number of inhabitants and the importance of Keighley have been very greatly increased during the last twenty years, owing to the rapidly extended market for worsted manufactures, a branch of industry that mainly employs the factory population of this part of Yorkshire, which has Bradford for its centre and metropolis.

    The close association that Elizabeth Gaskell had with the Brontes lends an authority to this biography. It is detailed with recollections and letters which paint a fascinating portrait of life in Howarth. I can't wait to read volume 2. My only minor criticism is that at times it is not always clear who is writing the many and various letters. Also, there is a considerable amount of French correspondence which is not translated and I was not able to fully appreciate the content. However, overall I really enjoyed this volume.
