Chaos in Shelf- A Calderdale Heritage Walk

Price: £4

Event description

This new walk will take you on a stroll along part of the main road through Shelf where we’ll investigate a murder, a missionary, a suicide, an “offensive and noxious” trade and Methodists who just couldn’t get along.

Meet Ben Stables at the entrance to St. Michael and All Angel’s Church (opposite Lidl), Halifax Road, Shelf, HX3 7RJ.


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).
