Brighouse Civic Trust
The old town hall (Town Hall Dental) Barclays Bank and the Black Bull pub are all situated in Thornton Square, Briggate, which is located at the end of Bethel Street.
The heritage walk takes visitors along the canal towpath, viewing some of the early canalside buildings that shaped the future of Brighouse.
In the town centre a number of important Victorian buildings can be seen. It is intended that the impressive former mayoral dais will be available to view at the Civic Hall. This important piece of civic history was the work of the famous local woodworker, HP Jackson of Coley.
The walk finishes at The Rydings, just outside the town centre. This is the location of the Smith Art Gallery & Library and the town’s War Memorial.
No booking is required for the walk which lasts approx 90 minutes and is organised by Peter Davis of Brighouse Civic Trust.
