About This Chapel Graveyard
Lothersdale is a peaceful rural village located in North Yorkshire. The village follows along the line of picturesque beck and valley, overlooked by farmsteads on the hills above. The Pennine Way runs through Lothersdale and village contains many historical buildings, such as Stone Gappe Hall. Charlotte Bronte was employed here as nursery governess in 1879 and provided her with the inspiration for opening chapters of her novel ‘Jane Eyre’. The village was featured in a 1975 BBC documentary, “Lothersdale: An image of England”
