A copy of Charlotte Brontës wedding dress and hat have gone on display at Red House Museum.

Charlotte’s original dress was destroyed by her husband Arthur after she died, but thankfully a copy has since been made.

The garments went on show as part of talks by historian Jim Summerscales and Bronte fan Imelda Marsden about Charlotte’s novel Shirley and its links to the Luddites and the museum.
