Brighouse

Join the Calderdale Heritage Walks every fortnight until March 2020

Posted on Updated on

Even walks in Brighouse attract walkers from further afield so why not join in a fun activity that combines gentle exercise with fascinating insight into the history of Calderdale?

Walks take place every second Sunday on a fortnightly basis. Each walk has its own topic of interest and takes place in a different part of Calderdale. All welcome to join, all levels of fitness welcome.
Walks that are wheelchair accessible are marked as such.

December walks:

  • December 1st: Big ‘Cs’ IN RIPPONDEN:  Church, catastrophe, conflict, cooperation, Chartism and more. Ripponden had them all!
  • December 15th: Brighouse Extends Northwards: In the 1800s Brighouse expanded rapidly particularly to the north. Many buildings from that period are still in use, some with rich histories. Wheelchair accessible.
  • December 29th: How Hebden Bridge: The story behind the growth of the town and the changes that have taken place. Wheelchair accessible.
