Haworth's streets decorated

Twelve glorious photos of the Haworth 1940s Weekend

The Yorkshire village of Haworth stepped back in time this weekend.

Thousands of visitors in period costume descended on Haworth for the annual 1940s weekend. They enjoyed tea dances, live music, military re-enactments and living history displays in the village, which is also famous as the home of the Bronte sisters.
