After their ‘marriage’ in 1834, Ann Walker moved into Shibden. Anne Lister could now begin to realize her coal-mining ambitions. Walker Pit was sunk in 1835, named in honour of Ann. And by 1836, Anne Lister’s grand plans to make Shibden look magnificent began to take shape.
A 2½ hour circular afternoon walk, with one steep ascent. Walking shoes or boots are essential. Sorry no dogs.

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.
