There is an inn opposite, where the candles announce a welcoming arrival which will hopefully include a bowl of broth to warm the soul.

Reader, I turn once more to wave goodbye and thank you to the fading rattles of the Brody hansom cab and enter the inn where I intend to sit in the window seat with the heritage and landscape of Bronte Country all around me.
