Event description

Calderdale Heritage Walks

‘All about Wainhouse’ Tour – Sunday 18th August 2024, 2pm

Often overlooked compared to other big names in Halifax, John Wainhouse is responsible for the creation of one of Calderdale’s most famous landmarks – Wainhouse Tower – known locally as the Tower of Spite. This walk explores some other projects of Wainhouse, and the role he played in the development of King Cross. The walk includes steep slopes, cobbles and steps. Good footwear is required. The walk is not suitable for wheelchairs/mobility scooters.

Walk does not include entry to the tower.

Meet Steve Crabtree at Wakefield Gate, adjacent to the tower, off Skircoat Moor Road, HX2 7EN
