Illustrated Historical Talk: More Calderdale Murders 1556-1964

On Tuesday 20 March, 7:30pm at Carlton United Reformed Church, Halifax, David Glover will give an illustrated lecture for Halifax Antiquarian Society.

Who killed the Vicar of Halifax in his home? Why was the Excise Collector slain in Savile Park Road? Who went mad and killed his boss in the newspaper office? Who was guilty of infanticide at Rhodesia Avenue?

Hear also about the tragic death of Mary Hackett in 1953 and the unsolved slaughter of Vicky Williamson at Barkisland in 1964. A wide selection of grisly tales.

Not for the faint-hearted!
