Dark Halifax – A Calderdale Heritage Walk

Price: £4

Event description

Formerly ‘Halifax’s Dark Side’, this walk recalls the severed heads, ghosts, creaking gibbets, strange burials and other peculiarities – like the guilty pig – historically associated with the places we visit around the centre of town.

Churchyard may be slippery.

Meet John Billingsley outside the top gate of Piece Hall, HX1 1PD


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).
