Thornfield Hall is the home of Edward Rochester in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre.  Thusday Next spends the last few chapters of The Eyre Affair protecting the characters there.

Thornfield is an isolated mansion, with several unused rooms and passages.  It’s rather dark and gloomy, in keeping with the Gothic ambiance of the novel.  It is, however, surrounded by beautiful gardens.

In modern adaptations of the novel, Haddon Hall, near Bakewell in Derbyshire, has been used to represent Thornfield.  It can be seen in Franco Zeffirelli’s 2006 version, in the BBC miniseries, and most recently in the 2011 film version.
