A park, a mansion, almshouses, a model village and a cemetery still remind us of past Crossley investment in western Halifax. But who was the original inventor behind the Crossley fortune? A man who is often forgotten, George Collier. Where did he live and where was he buried?
Meet David Glover at St Ann’s Place, Pellon Lane HX1 5RB – just above Angel Road. The walk ends at Lister Lane cemetery.
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).
