    The Brontë sisters

    The Brontë sisters grew up in Haworth Parsonage, Yorkshire, not Asthall Manor, Oxfordshire – as one contestant on today’s edition of “The Chase” on ITV ought to be ashamed of himself for not knowing!



    Also the diaeresis on the name “Brontë” should be over the letter e, not the letter o! People just do not seem to be very literate these days. Mad
