The Gaskell House

This plaque sits on the outside of 84 Plymouth Grove, a Grade II* detached Regency-style villa that was home to Elizabeth Gaskell and her family until 1913.  In addition to being home to Gaskell, the author of Mary Barton (1848),  Cranford (1853), North and South (1855), and Wives and Daughters (1865), the house was visited by other important literary figures including Charlotte Bronte and Charles Dickens.
