Sally Wainwright – New Bronte drama to be filmed a stones throw from Westfield Lodge
Sally Wainwright, best known for Happy Valley and Last Tango in Halifax has written and will be directing a new period drama ‘To Walk Invisible’ based on the life of the Brontes. This harmonizes perfectly with Bronte200 and the anniversary of Charlotte Bronte’s birth.
“There’s the windswept moors, there’s the broken hearts and there’s the winding cobbled streets of Haworth. Except when Sally Wainwright’s retelling of the lives of three literary sisters and their wayward brother comes to the small screen don’t expect bustles and bonnets. This will be period drama with added grit.”
To Walk Invisible: The Bronte Sisters will be filmed in and around Yorkshire, where the most famous sisters of English literature lived. Westfield Lodge, Haworth is extremely excited for the filming to begin as it is a stones throw away from the self-catering apartments. The film set has been erected just behind the premises and can therefore be seen from the apartments.
“I’m delighted to be filming not just Happy Valley series 2 in Sowerby Bridge and Hebden Bridge again, but after Christmas we’ll be filming the Bronte Sisters film too, over in Haworth, and I’m really looking forward to meeting everyone at the Square Chapel Centre for the Arts in September.” Sally Wainwright.
