Calderdale Heritage Walk: Suffragettes, Jazz Club, Mills & Murder

18th Jul 2021

Our route leads partly through back streets, visiting sites where three women once lived, all imprisoned as Suffragettes in 1907. In 1918 one of them was the first woman to vote in the West Riding, and we visit the site of her Polling Station. Destination the YMCA (Marlborough Hall) where Emmeline Pankhurst once addressed a rally. Also hear about the Crabtree murder of 1870, the founding of the Plebeians Jazz Club in 1961, and brief tales of mills along the route. Children and dogs welcome.
A 2 hour walk - but allow for walk (or bus) back to start.

Guide: David Glover
