1892 Smallpox Clifton – A Calderdale Heritage Walk

Price: £4

Event description

A major outbreak of smallpox hit the Brighouse area in 1892. We’ll visit the key sites in Clifton to re-tell the story.

Meet John Brooke by the war memorial in the centre of Clifton. HD6 4HP


Unless stated, walks begin at 2pm. Please wear appropriate footwear.

Most walks lasts 2 to 2¼ hours and those are fairly easy walking – normally on surfaced paths.  A few walks are a little longer, use rural paths or are harder walking – there will be a note in the text about those.   Almost all starting points are served by public transport.

The majority of walks are circular, finishing at the starting point, however a few walks are linear and these are marked in the text. Except where stated otherwise, there’s no need to book, just turn up and pay on the day. The charge for our walks is £4 (all ages).
