Calderdale Heritage Walk Anne Lister’s Shibden: Her Private Face

Price: Free

Event description

Anne Lister returned forlorn to Shibden in 1832, betrayed by yet one more woman’s marriage plans. Then re-acquaintance with neighbouring heiress Ann Walker changed her life ~ forever. Anne Lister deployed her considerable persuasive powers to enthral and seduce this wealthy young woman ~ all out of sight of prying eyes down in Halifax.
A 4-hour walk, including a very steep climb up Old Bank. Includes short readings from Nature’s Domain. Please bring packed lunch & snacks. Walking shoes or boots are essential. Sorry no dogs. Bus back to Halifax.

Please note that this walk will start at 11.30.

Guide: Jill Liddington and Steve Crabtree
