Cheering them on: The peloton rides up Main Street as stage two of the Tour de France passes through Haworth, West Yorkshire, 6 July 2014. The crowds were described by the Tour’s general director as some of the largest ever seen watching the world-famous cycling race

Even Bronte country has developed a taste for baguettes as Yorkshire geared up for the start of the 101st Tour de France in its backyard this weekend.

In Haworth, the village made famous by the Bronte sisters, the world-famous museum in their honour  closed on Sunday because of the huge crowds that lined the Main Street to see Chris Froome and Mark Cavendish climb up the cobbles.
