Calderdale Family History Society – Yorkshire Oddities

The beautiful Yorkshire countryside is dotted with many interesting and often bizarre follies. These and their fascinating origins are explored in this engaging talk by Paul Kenny, together with some of the “characters” the county has spawned over the centuries.

The talk will take place in the Shibden Room of North Bridge Leisure Centre, HX3 6TE on Thursday 22 February, 7:30pm-9:00pm.

From humble beginnings in Halifax, these include the rather eccentric Percy Shaw, who went on to invent the Catseye reflective road stud.

Admission is just £1 or free to members of Calderdale Family History Society.
