    A superb way to go walking in Calderdale - The Calderdale Way is a 50 mile (80 km) walk exploring the hills, moors and valleys of Calderdale that recently celebrated its 40th anniversary.

    It is an ‘up and down’ journey with few level sections. However, the higher levels provide some exceptionally fine panoramic views. The main and link routes to the valley bottom are designed so that they can be completed in short stages.

    The Calderdale Way encircles Halifax, Hebden Bridge and Todmorden, following old packhorse ways across the open gritstone hillsides with sections of traditional stone causeway, passing through hillside villages and old mill towns on the banks of the River Calder.

    There are numerous link paths which connect the Calderdale Way to the valley floor. There are medieval settlements at Lumbutts and Mankinholes, and Withens Gate, where the Pennine Way crosses. A short diversion along the Pennine Way takes in the popular walk to the 100ft monument, Stoodley Pike.

    The full length of the route is 51.39 miles, with a total climb of approx 2,600 metres (over 9,000 feet) at a climb rate of 43 metres per mile. This makes a flat equivalent distance of 57.49 miles.

    The long period of hot weather has meant there is an increased risk of moorland fires in Calderdale. Please take care when out and about in moorlands around Calderdale and West Yorkshire. You can find more advice here. The burning of moorland is not a victimless crime. If you see anything suspicious report it to crimestoppers 0800 555111. #moorlandfires @WestYorksPolice @West_Yorks_FRS

    Saturday 30th May 2pm at Brighouse Library

    Join Anne Lister scholar Jill Liddington as she introduces us to Anne Lister and her diaries.

    After her death in 1840, silence surrounded Anne Lister & her amazing diary. Outside local Antiquarians, few people knew much about her. Right up until 1984 when the Guardian published an article headed ‘The two million word enigma’. I’d recently moved to Halifax ~ and was soon hooked. Only to discover it wasn’t 2m words but 4 million!

    Anne Lister books followed. Yet it was only with Sally Wainwright’s 2019 drama series Gentleman Jack (BBC1/HBO) that Anne Lister won a global following. So what’s this triumph doing for Calderdale?

    Talk followed by Q&A
