Sheffield History

Recommended Posts



The village of Haworth near Bradford in West Yorkshire (Bronte Country!) hosts an amazing annual 1940's weekend.

This 1940's weekend is unmissable with so much to do and with airplane flyovers, army vehicles and uniforms, 40's dress, and of course all set in this stunning little village!

The 1040's weekend in Haworth is a two day spectacular and is the biggest and best 40's event in the UK, with thousands of visitors enjoying a day out walking from Central Park to Main Street and up to the Bronte Parsonage and museum and then around all the attractions, shops, cafes and pubs in the village.

So many people were dressed up in their 40's outfits and clothing and the village came to life with vintage cars, army vehicles, a parade and procession, singers and live music (there was a George Formby tribute singer outside Fourteas tea shop). This was a funpacked weekend full of nostalgia and there were people dressed in army uniform, Winston Churchill was wandering around, and everyone was having such a great time going back in time to the 40's!

The flyover from the Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster Bomber was spectacular too. Bunting lined the streets, Union Jack flags flew everywhere, the ladies in their petticoats and hats and the men dressed sharp in their suits - fantastic stuff! Along the way we had tea and scones in Forteas (a lovely little 1940's styled tearoom), and of course had to have a pie at the famous Hunters Of Haworth pie cafe - delicious! The Fleece Inn has a great display of flags and delicious beers, and we stuck our nose into the Oh La La Vintage Shop to see what's on offer.

Further up Main Street past The Kings Arms pub we bought some lovely vintage sweets from Mrs Beighton's Sweet Shop - what a fab day we had! Haworth is a village in City of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England, in the Pennines, 3 miles south-west of Keighley, 10 miles west of Bradford and 10 miles east of Colne in Lancashire. The surrounding areas include Oakworth and Oxenhope. Nearby villages include Cross Roads, Stanbury and Lumbfoot.

Haworth is a tourist destination known for its association with the Bronte sisters and the preserved heritage Keighley and Worth Valley Railway.

Famous for being home of the beloved Bronte family and the backdrop for many of their novels, literary fans flock here in their thousands!

This really was the best
