The Brontës: 1846
Haworth, West Yorkshire (Part 2)

The Black Bull, situated near the top of Haworth's main street was a favorite inn of Branwell Brontë. Branwell's preferred drink was whiskey, and when he could not afford that, drank gin instead.

In 1846, after being dismissed as tutor to the Robinsons of Thorp Green, and a possible failed affair with Mrs Lydia Robinson, Branwell sank into alcoholism. He consequently became an even more frequent customer to the various inns of Haworth and Halifax.
