Calderdale Heritage Walk – ‘Flats for Women’ and More

Posted on

 

 

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 is still a walk from the Winter Programme with the next on;

Saturday 30 March – Fine Halls for Men, Small Flats for Women.

Stories of gracious houses to the south of the town centre, some now vanished.

Includes a look at the Flats for Women sponsored by local Soroptimists in 1938, the site of Halifax’s first Railway Station, the home of Charles Dickens’ father-in-law, and the tale of Mrs Haigh of Lower Shaw Hill who was buried alive!

A circular walk, lasting just over two hours.

Meet David Glover at 1:30pm outside the former Magistrates’ Court, HX1 2AF facing Harrison Road.

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