A sample extract from the resource:

Setting descriptions

Match a photograph with a description

Arthur Kipps is the narrator of The Woman in Black. So, we see all the places that he describes through his eyes. The descriptions he gives us help us to imagine what each place looked like, sounded like, smelt like, and felt like. The descriptions help to create the atmosphere of each place and help to create feelings of isolation, emptiness, horror, fear, dread, and sadness
