Moor Lodge at Scar Top, Haworth, West Yorkshire. The likely setting used by Charlotte Bronte for Ferndean Manor in Jane Eyre.

Moor Lodge is situated above ScarTop near Haworth in West Yorkshire. Built in the 18th century by Amos Nelson, it was used only very occasionally as a hunting lodge, the white sheets being removed from furniture and the household adornments dusted for the arrival of a select group of influential local businessmen.
