Thornton Village, is located to the West of Bradford. The preserved centre retains the character of a typical Pennine village, with stone-built houses, and stone flagged roofs. It is best known for its most famous family, the Bronte’s, whose Birthplace was in Thornton, before they moved to Haworth.
The property is situated on Market Street, close to The Bronte Birthplace, and near to Thornton Library and Thornton Community Centre. The surrounding area is, however, predominantly residential in nature. Market Street is a one-way Street at this point, so the property can only be approached from the Eastern end.

The property backs onto Market Street, with a relatively open aspect to the south west, looking out over the valley, surrounded by other residential properties.
