Calderdale Heritage Walk: Anne Lister's Shibden; Marriage, Mining & Money

Starting 31st Jul 2021 See all Dates for this event

After their ‘marriage’ in 1834, Ann Walker moved into Shibden. Anne Lister could now begin to realize her coal-mining ambitions. Walker Pit was sunk in 1835, named in honour of Ann. And by 1836, Anne Lister’s grand plans to make Shibden look magnificent began to take shape.

A 2½ hour circular afternoon walk, with one steep ascent. Walking shoes or boots are essential. Sorry no dogs.

Guide: Jill Liddington
