Calderdale Heritage Walk: Anne Lister's Halifax; Mock Marriages & Effigy Burning

Starting 7th Jul 2021 See all Dates for this event

6pm

The 1835 violent political contest in Halifax became known as the ‘window-breaking election’. Immediately after, ‘mock marriage’ announcements appeared in Yorkshire newspapers. Then in 1836, lurid tales reached Shibden of Anne Lister and Ann Walker being burnt in effigy down in Halifax.

Who was behind these pointed public attacks ~ and why?

A 2-hour circular early evening walk with short readings from Female Fortune. There are some steep steps. Sorry, no dogs.

Guide: Jill Liddington
