Happy New Year! Here is our winter newsletter with an update on what’s happening at Calderdale Heritage Walks until the end of March.
Did you know that there are fifteen Grade 1 listed buildings in Calderdale? How many can you name? During 2023 we will be visiting several. (https://britishlistedbuildings.co.uk/england/calderdale/grade-i#.Y68bJxXP2kM) may help you!
Our very popular walk to Dobroyd Castle in March has now sold out, but we plan to repeat the walk in the summer programme. We have added two more walks. The Coiners in Halifax on 12th March; and Halifax Murders, sudden deaths and other events on the evening of 27th March. You will need to book for these late additions on https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/calderdale-heritage-walks.
Sunday 15th January : ‘Cornholme Cornucopia’, meeting Anne Mealia at 1.30pm outside the Waggon & Horses OL14 8NQ. You’ll have the chance to learn more about the village’s industrial, literary and supernatural past.
29th January : Join Anne Kirker on a wander round Ripponden looking at its fine buildings, textile history and much more. Meet at Ripponden Parish Church gates HX6 4DG at 1.30pm.
For these and all our remaining winter walks there is no need to book – just turn up and pay the guide £4.
The Winter Programme, available on https://calderdaleheritagewalks.org.uk/winter.html shows what is to come in February and March including Shibden Hall parkland; northern Elland; a new walk around Dean Clough and Bowling Dyke; pubs and beer houses in Norwood Green; and buildings around Arden Road, Halifax.
We expect to publish our summer programme in late February or early March. It will be emailed to all our members and will also be available as a printed programme in local libraries, The Hub and various other outlets; on our own website, and Calderdale What’s On.
We hope that you find something of interest over the next few months, and we look forward to seeing you on one or more of our walks. Remember to wrap up warm and to come prepared for seasonal wet, cold and windy weather! It’s also a good idea to check our facebook page for updates on what’s happening, and in case a walk has to be unexpectedly cancelled at short notice.
