Some Forgotten Calderdale Women? A David Glover Historical Talk

Price: £6

Event description


Red Brick Auditorium

Destitute after the death of her Chelsea Pensioner husband, remarkably, 78-year-old Hannah Logan walked to London from Halifax in 1832; Lucy Hamerton recorded much about quirks of life in 19th Century Elland; Southowram-born Caroline Freeman is believed to have been the first Calderdale woman University graduate; and Eileen Nugent from Sowerby became secretary to Scouting’s founder, Baden Powell. These women deserve to be remembered!

Ticket income from David Glover’s Illustrated Local History talks goes directly into supporting Square Chapel.
