August 1842: Plug Drawers, Hayley hill, North Bridge & More – A Calderdale Heritage Walk

Price: £4

Event description

When People Power brought Halifax’s mills to a standstill, the Riot Act was read, tales of victims of the military.  Looking at many relevant sites.Warning – some very steep slopes up and down. Good walking shoes or boots are recommended. This is a 3 hour walk. Unsuitable for wheelchairs.

Meet David Glover at HX3 6EL – outside playground entrance, Woodside Road, off Haley Hill


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).
