Why not try the new Dean Clough family trail? This free trail takes approximately 1 hour to complete and the clues lead you across the Dean Clough site (both inside and out). On your travels you will get to see the huge Dean Clough Lego model and you'll be tested to see if you can walk along the old railway tracks, amongst many things.
There are also cafes, bars and restaurants at Dean Clough so you can combine doing the trail with having a bite to eat or something to drink.
Check out our website www.deanclough.com for opening times and what else there is to see and do at Dean Clough. The trail leaflets are available from Main Reception in D Mill.

Discover tales of the Square Chapel tombstones, anecdotes of a blind Bellman, tragic triplets, a Mayor’s infant son, a corrupt Sheriff, a Home Management Manual’s authoress, an early Spiritualist, and a noted brewer who was prosecuted for being drunk.
A man from Indiana who met a mystery end in Halifax; a man who fought the Americans in Canada; repatriated ashes of a man who had been institutionalised in New York.
Halifax’s General Cemetery is the last resting place of nearly 20,000 past local residents and others from the 1840s to 1963. These include Mill owners, Chartists, Waterloo Soldiers, Great War fatalities, Nurses, nonconformist clergy, organ builders, and even murder victims.
The cemetery - of European significance, has been rescued from jungle conditions over the past eighteen years and is cared for by its Friends, a public charity.
Please note that there are no toilets on site and that stout footwear is recommended.

Joining Shed Seven on this Yorkshire-only bill will be platinum-selling indie rockers The Pigeon Detectives, Leeds indie-legends The Wedding Present and local lads Skylights.
