75th Anniversary of VE Day
8th May 2020
For our very first blog, we thought it would be poignant to commemorate the 75th anniversary of V E Day (Victory in Europe) and the end of the Second World War in Europe. Seventy five years ago, the 8th May 1945 marked the end to nearly 6 years of war. People rejoiced and across the nation – there were street parties, dancing and singing in Haworth village. We have this amazing photograph of Mulberry Cottage on VE Day in 1945. At the time Mulberry Cottage was an Off Licence and can be seen on the right with three ladies chatting outside. In it’s more recent history the cottage has also been a sweet shop. We understand the frontage was changed and the shop turned into a home around the 1970’s. It became our holiday cottage in 2016. Our guests love it’s original features and pretty rear garden being only a few minutes walk to Haworth village’s famous cobbled Main Street.
