Halifax Heritage Trail Listing 2019

‘TIME & PLACE’ at All Souls, Haley Hill, HX3 6DR

  • Sat 14 Sept – 11am – 3pm
  • Sun 15 Sept – 11am – 3pm
  • Sat 21 Sept – 11am – 3pm
  • Sun 22 Sept – 11am – 3pm

There is always something new to discover year on year.

Come and visit this extraordinary Grade 1 listed Gothic church commissioned by the local industrialist Edward Akroyd 160 years ago. It was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott and considered to be his finest church with exceptional stained glass.

Scott also designed the model village Akroydon for Edward Akroyd’s mill workers and the old manor house was later donated to become Bankfield Museum.

As part of the anniversary celebrations of The Churches Conservation Trust and the building itself the dedicated volunteer team are working to bring this generally unused building back into the community, to be an exceptional venue for events and exploring the history of the area.

 ‘TIME & PLACE’ solo art exhibition by Jane Austin

The local watercolour artist Jane Austin is holding a third solo exhibition of paintings, this year reflecting the rich heritage of the church, the Akroydon model village and Halifax itself, rooted firmly in the Industrial Revolution. The drawings from several workshops during the year will inspire to take a closer look. Meet the artist and see how she develops her work, as seen on BBC 1 series ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’.

Once a thriving church it fell into disrepair and was no longer used for regular worship by 1979. However many people still have fond memories of family celebrations and connections with the church which are being gathered into a community project of stories and images, ‘People of All Souls’. Dates for video filming of stories at the church and recording of photographic memories at Bankfield Museum will be published soon.

Guided Walk

A knowledgeable guided walk of the area, with Jackie Butterfield, will leave the church on Sunday 15 September at 11am and Sunday 22 September at 11am taking approximately an hour, inviting a donation of £3.00, bookable through the Halifax Visitor Information Centre, 01422 368725.

Sunday Service

A service will be held on Sunday 15 September at 4pm by Reverend Hilary Barber from the Halifax Minster.
