The history of Calderdale’s markets and the positive effect they have on our towns– Lecture by John Walker, Markets Manager, Calderdale Council
In any language, the Market Place conjures up a picture of people, merchandise, movement, vibrancy, history, culture and a multitude of other adjectives. Throughout the centuries local townsfolk have gathered to buy and sell their wares, from established marketplaces. Many of our historic customs were given over to market day where people thronged to this great gathering. Calderdale’s Markets span those very same centuries. From Royal Charters through Gibbet Law
Meetings are held in the Halifax Room, Calderdale Industrial Museum, Square Road, Halifax HX1 1Q
