Halifax Antiquarian Society Lecture – Mill Bank the Story of a West Yorkshire Village

Price: £Free – 3

Event description


Mill Bank’s centuries of association with the textile trade was brought to a sudden and disastrous end in 1901. Fifty years later, the village was scheduled for demolition and was only saved by the strenuous efforts of a few local champions. Now a Conservation area, the village has been revived to become ‘The Best Small Village in Yorkshire’ according to Yorkshire in Bloom in 2014. In 2018, Ruth Beazley, in association with Hazel Whitely, published a book ‘Mill Bank. The story of a West Yorkshire Village’. In this illustrated talk Ruth presents their combined research.

Meetings are held in the Halifax Room, Calderdale Industrial Museum, Square Road, Halifax HX1 1Q
