Before the Bypass – A Walk Around King Cross

The King Cross Local History Group are leading a walk around King Cross to visit that part of the area which many will remember before the area was cleared of the rows of terraced houses and courtyards around Haugh Shaw Road. The walk will visit one of those courtyards where Laura Annie Willson MBE, the local Suffragette, lived as a child. We will look at how the massive increases in population affected the built environment and remember the community amenities which served that population, as well as some of the older aspects of the area.

There are two walks planned, the first on Sunday 14 July 2019 and another on Sunday 27 October both starting at 11:00am. You will meet outside the library at King Cross and can book a place by emailing Graham Bradshaw at gjbradshaw@outlook.com or lindamglover1@hotmail.co.uk.

DON’T PANIC! Calderdale at War, 1939-1945

Running from Saturday 8 June to 30 September 2019Bankfield Museum will be holding a FREE exhibition of photographs and memorabilia.

September 2019 is the 80th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War. Calderdale was directly affected: men and women were conscripted for military and industrial service; industry was placed on a war footing and many workers took on Civil Defence and Home Guard duties. The area did not escape unscathed, there were 11 bombing incidents recorded and 11 people were killed.

On 24 December 1944 a German V1 Flying Bomb (commonly known as ‘Doodlebugs’) landed in a field at Little Tooting Farm, Hubberton, Sowerby. Extensive blast damage made the farmhouse uninhabitable for some time and broke windows a mile away. The farmhouse occupants received cuts from broken glass.

The photograph shows the Auxiliary Fire Service team, which attended the incident, along with the police and ambulance service.
