St. Mary's Review

Most visitors to this little medieval church near the castle are attracted by the churchyard's most famous occupant: Anne, the youngest Brontë sister. As a governess, Anne accompanied her employers to Scarborough for five summers. Shortly before her her death from tuberculosis in 1849, she returned here in the hope the sea air would stimulate a recovery. Her sister Charlotte decided to "lay the flower where it had fallen" and buried Anne above the bay she'd loved.
