Heritage Walk: The Wainhouse Trail

Meet David Nortcliffe on Monday 27 August, 2:15pm by the base of Wainhouse Tower for a 2 hour walk through the area where John Edward Wainhouse operated. Looking at his life, his properties and his famous feud with Sir Henry Edwards.

This is a Calderdale Heritage Walk and there is a charge of £3 (all ages) – no booking needed.

Access on foot from Wakefield Gate (off Skircoat Moor Road), Halifax.

(If you plan to ascend the Tower and walk the trail on the same afternoon, you’ll need to do the ascent first starting around 1:15pm as the Tower will have closed by the time the walk ends!).

  • Easy walk on level paths
  • Bus available to near starting point
  • Walk – please wear appropriate footwear and clothing.

Moorside Junior Wardens conduct speed checks on Keighley Road

Karen Scanlon, from the Ovenden Initiative, arranged for Junior Wardens from Moorside Community Primary School’s to go out with the speed camera to get an idea of how road users are driving in the area of our local schools.

Joined by Dan Marham, Ovenden Initiative and Calderdale Council Community Warden Lee Ackroyd, the session began with Junior Wardens  using the camera on Keighley Road where the responsible drivers received a thumbs up as they passed, and the not so responsible drivers getting a thumbs down!

From the 289 cars recorded, only two of those were driving in excess of the 30mph speed limit and one of which was an emergency vehicle much to the Wardens amusement.

Future speed checks will continue to take place throughout North and East Halifax with both Junior Warden Groups and in partnership with West Yorkshire Police in ongoing work to tackle nuisance vehicles in the area.
