The Real Places of Jane Eyre's World

Updated February 24, 2011

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

Actual Place: White Edge Lodge

In Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë wrote of Moor House, “the grey, small, antique structure, with its low roof, its latticed casements, its mouldering walls, its avenue of aged firs--all grown aslant under the stress of mountain winds; its garden, dark with yew and holly––and where no flowers but of the hardiest species would bloom--found a charm both potent and permanent.” While the house at White Edge Lodge differs slightly from Bronte’s vision, it too has “a charm both potent and permanent.” The building, which lays in White Edge Moor, originally served as a gamekeeper’s cottage.
