Calderdale Heritage Walk: Ann Walker's Lightcliffe

11th Jul 2021

In 1830 Elizabeth & Ann Walker inherited much of Lightcliffe and became very wealthy. Within two years Ann had become the companion of Anne Lister. We walk round part of the estate passing where Ann lived. We finish in the churchyard where she is buried together with other members of her family, employees and tenants. The tower will be open with viewing restricted to the first 2 steps. This is a 2 hour circular walk, mainly on pavements with just a short walk across a footpath. Dogs on leads welcome.

Guide: Ian Philp

We will use TicketSource https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/calderdale-heritage-walks which appears to be an easy site to use and, if we have to cancel a walk, will provide an automatic refund. The cost of most walks will be £4 inclusive of booking fee but a few are £5 because of extra expenses. The site will open for bookings on Friday 21st May. Groups will be between 16 and 22.

Many of our walks start at 2pm and the details of where to meet, including a post code, will be on your ticket. These walks are not really suited to under 13s.
