Celebrating 400 yrs of the
Brontë Bell Chapel

About Us

Restoration of the graveyard and the Brontë Bell Chapel began in 2000.

Gradually, like minded people who had an interest in both the history of the Chapel and in the potential of the whole graveyard area for people to enjoy in the future began to find each other.  These people had skills in (or were willing to try) gardening, woodwork, landscaping and general labouring.

As numbers grew, the Old Bell Chapel Action group was formed.

We are proud of our achievements in making Brontë Bell Chapel and surrounding graveyard a place where people can now visit to enjoy it’s history, beauty and nature.  We have also erected an information board for visitors and created a wilderness corner, recycling bay and bird nesting project.  We continue to meet regularly to continue to maintain the grounds.

If you are interested in the Brontë’s life story this is a great place to visit as part of the Brontë Country locations, within walking distance from the birthplace of the Brontë sisters. With an accessible ramp for wheelchair users everybody can enjoy its tranquil surroundings.
