Calderdale Heritage Walks Summer Programme 2019



The summer programme has fortnightly walks plus extra ones including Bank Holiday Mondays.
No pre-booking required, just turn up and pay the Guide – its £3 (all ages).

Almost all starting points are served by public transport. Well behaved dogs on leads are allowed on walks unless indicated by the No Dogs symbol.

There are still a few walks from the Winter Programme with the next on;

Sunday 3 March – The North Side of Elland.

Elland goes back to at least 1086 yet in 1760 much of the land was open land. In the century that followed, the arrival of canal, railway, new roads, industry and more housing changed things radically.
Meet Ian Philp at 1:30pm by St. Mary’s Parish Church, HX5 0BW for the latest Calderdale Heritage Walk.

Keep an eye on the Facebook page to see any late alterations.

Illustrated Historical Talk: Ann Walker’s In-Laws

In an Anne Lister related theme, David Glover describes Ann Walker’s in-laws – The Sutherland family of Scotland and Lightcliffe on Wednesday 26 Sep, 2:00pm at the Red Brick Auditorium of Square Chapel Arts Centre.

This talk begins with a bang – a murder in the 1750s West Highlands, and tells the fascinating story of a family from its Scots roots to a Halifax marriage – and beyond.

Along the way, hear how Ann Walker’s scheming brother-in-law Captain Sutherland ensured she was shut away in an asylum near York, moving into her home Shibden Hall himself. His son sold Crow Nest mansion and returned to Scotland, to an unfortunate future.

A curious tale including extreme greed, child abuse, and bankruptcy.

Tickets are £5 and can be booked at the Square Chapel website.
