Anne Lister's Shibden: Marriage, Mining & Money

Starting 2nd Apr 2020 See all Dates for this event

With Ann Walker now living at Shibden, Anne Lister began to realize her coal-mining ambitions. This walk passes by the moss house where her determined courtship began. It climbs steadily up Pump Lane, then curves round by Walker Pit - sunk in 1835 and named in honour of Ann. By 1836 Anne Lister's aggrandisement of Shibden's magnificent grounds could begin to take shape.

Walk leader: Jill Liddington. A 2½ hour circular afternoon walk, with one steep ascent, ending with tea, cake & Q&A.
Meet at 2pm outside Meerside Café, HX3 6XG. Dogs on leads welcome.
