The Real Places of Jane Eyre's World

Jane Eyre’s production designer Will Hughes-Jones and location manager Giles Edleston worked hard to find just the right places to capture the romantic landscape of Charlotte Brontë’s masterpiece.
The Moor House (2)
Actual Place: White Edge Lodge
The White Edge Lodge on White Edge Moor is perfectly situated to bring Charlotte Brontë’s vision of St. John Rivers and his sisters’ rural world to life: “They clung to the purple moors behind and around their dwelling--to the hollow vale into which the pebbly bridle-path leading from their gate descended, and which wound between fern-banks first, and then amongst a few of the wildest little pasture-fields that ever bordered a wilderness of heath, or gave sustenance to a flock of grey moorland sheep, with their little mossy- faced lambs:––they clung to this scene, I say, with a perfect enthusiasm of attachment.”
