Elizabeth Gaskell writes:
Right before the traveller on this road rises Haworth village; he can see it for two miles before he arrives, for it is situated on the side of a pretty steep hill, with a background of dun and purple moors, rising and sweeping away yet higher than the church, which is built at the very summit of the long narrow street.
To this, Clement Shorter appends the note, "Haworth had a population of 6,303 in 1841. It had declined to 5,896 in 1861, but contained a population of 8,033 in 1891" (3-4).
