    The 253 ft Wainhouse Tower was originally commissioned as a chimney for the local dye works by John Edward Wainhouse in the late 19th century. The structure was never actually used as a working chimney and as such, is regarded by many as one of Britain's finest follies. The Tower is open to the public on the Bank Holidays below. For those brave enough to tackle the 403 steps to the viewing gallery at the top, the stunning views make it well worth the climb. Wainhouse Tower is open from 10am, with the last ascent at 3.30pm and closing at 4pm, on the following dates in 2020: Easter Monday April 13th May Day Friday May 8th Spring Bank Monday May 25th August Bank Monday August 31st Adult £3.50 Children £2.50 Family ticket (2 Adults & 2 Children) £10 Adult Passport to Leisure Holders (PPL) £3 Child Passport to Leisure (PPL) £2 Born in 1817 John Edward Wainhouse inherited his Uncle’s Dyeworks on Washer Lane, Halifax in 1856. The Dyeworks were typical of the day, causing considerable pollution because of smoke emissions. Halifax was badly affected by smog. For weeks on end the smoke laden atmosphere blanketed the town, reducing sunlight and contaminating the landscape with soot and sulphur trioxide. This national problem caused the Government to introduce a Smoke Abatement Act. Wainhouse developed the idea of building a chimney 350 metres up the hillside from the Dyeworks, connected to it by an underground tunnel. Sir Henry Edwards, A wealthy neighbour of John Edward Wainhouse, made complaints about the smoke nuisance caused by the Dyeworks, leading to a feud between the two men. Mr Isaac Booth (who was also Sir Henry’s architect) was asked by Wainhouse to design and build the mill chimney. The design incorporated an internal staircase that led to four balcony features. This exacerbated the deepening feud between Wainhouse and Sir Henry. Sir Henry, an extrovert and boastful man, claimed that his private estate at Pye Nest could not be viewed from any house o the hills. Wainhouse said he would rectify this by putting an observatory at the top of his chimney. Work commenced in 1871. In 1873, as a result of the feuding; the architect Isaac Booth decided he could no longer work for either man. This led to the appointment of Richard Swarbrick Dugdale, who redesigned the upper section of the building. The new design incorporated a corbelled and balustrade balcony, surmounted by a lantern dome and finial. The building was completed on the 9th September 1875. It is estimated that over 9,000 tonnes of materials were used. The total cost is thought to be in the region of £15,000. However, by the time the building was completed, it was clear that it would never be used as a chimney. The Washer Lane Dyeworks had been sold in 1874 to the works manager Mr Henry Mossman. The sale did not include the Tower. It is thought that Mossman saw the then uncompleted building to be a liability. This point of view is difficult to understand given the fact that Mossman was then prosecuted under the Smoke Abatement Act. Mossman proved that considerable efforts were made to abate the smoke nuisance by pulling down six existing small chimneys …and erecting a large chimney in their place! John Edward Wainhouse died on 26th July 1883 at the age of 66. He as buried in the family grave at Holy Trinity Churchyard, Halifax. The gravestone is located against the boundary wall on the south side of the Church. The Tower and three acres of surrounding land was sold by auction in 1887. The Tower changed hands several times until coming under the ownership of the Halifax Corporation in 1919. During the Second World War the Tower was used by the military authorities as an observation post. As a result of the reorganisation of Local Government in 1974, Wainhouse Tower became the property of Calderdale Council. Today the Tower is used as a viewing platform; open to the public on Bank Holidays and other select days through the year

    A historic site rich in Methodist history, Mount Zion Methodist Heritage Chapel offers you the chance to explore a beautiful heritage building and enjoy a cream tea in the summer months!

    Mount Zion has a unique part in the history of Methodism, with John Wesley staying in the cottage (in the room now known as The Prophet's Chamber) adjoining the Chapel, when he was travelling between preaching appointments in the 1700's.

    Mount Zion is home to the world-renowned Horace Hird Methodist Pottery Collection - come and see the many interesting pieces that comprise our collection.

    The Chapel is open to the public between April and September every Tuesday 2pm-4pm. Light refreshments in the form of a cuppa and biscuits are available for a small donation. On the Tuesdays in June, July and August Yorkshire Cream Teas are also available, with homemade scones baked fresh that day, homemade jam (which is sometimes also available for sale), butter and freshly whipped cream. The cream teas come with unlimited tea or coffee (speciality teas and cordials are also available) for only £4 per person. Free Wi-Fi is available during your visit.

    Guided tours can be arranged on request outside of our usual April-September opening times. We also hold various artistic exhibitions, occasional musical concerts and open days throughout the year, with musical accompaniment, occasional local historical and Methodist history talks and refreshments. Please see our website and Facebook page for details. Please email Circuit Heritage Officer Mr. John Wilson regarding visits and other activities such as weddings, at  chme@calderdalemethodists.org.uk.

    Parking is limited on Per Lane, so if you visit us by car, please park safely and considerately on the roadside. There is a regular 504 bus service to Denholme from Halifax, that goes along the A629,  allowing you to get off at the bus stop at the top of Per Lane. Mount Zion Chapel is only a 200 metre walk along Per Lane from the A629 Keighley Road.

    Please take care when using the flagged path approaching the Chapel. The flags are uneven and can be slippery when wet.

    Ann Walker’s grandfather, William, largely funded the Georgian Lightcliffe Old St Matthew Church, which was erected in 1775 and replaced an earlier, Tudor foundation.

    William also built Cliffe Hill just a short walk away, where Ann Walker lived. Ann and her family worshipped at St Matthew’s Church and had family pews.

    After becoming the companion and wife of Anne Lister of Shibden Hall, the couple had a green velvet-lined pew installed at St Matthew’s so they could worship together there.

    Ann died in February 1854 and was buried in the church, according to her memorial plaque “under the pulpit”. The exact location of this pulpit is the subject of debate, as the church was replaced in 1880 with the current church building.

    The old St Matthew’s church was used as a mortuary chapel, but it fell into decay after suffering serious damage from a storm in the 1960’s. Vandalism and theft followed and the church was demolished in the early 1970s.

    Fortunately the ‘Friends of Friendless Churches’ rescued the memorials from the walls of the church and they are now stored in Lightcliffe Tower, the only remaining part of the old St Matthew Church.

    A memorial stone has been placed on the spot where it is thought that Ann lies and the brass memorial plaque to her now hangs high inside the tower. The plaque is hard to decipher but reads:

    In memory of Ann Walker of Cliffe Hill who was born May 20th 1803 and died February 25th 1854

    and is buried underneath the pulpit in this church.

    And of her niece, Mary who died June 6th 1845 and is buried in this churchyard.

    And of her nephews George Sackville (Sutherland) who died in 1843 aged 12,

    John Walker who died in 1836 aged 1 year and are buried in Kirkmichael, Rosshire,

    the children of George MacKay and Elizabeth Sutherland

    Sadly there are no known images of Ann Walker. Most of what we know about her comes from Anne Lister's diaires and letters. Ann Walker is portrayed by Sophie Rundle in the BBC ONE/ HBO drma Gentleman Jack.

    You will find Lightcliffe Tower along Wakefield Road, in Lightcliffe, Halifax. The tower is located on your left (as you are driving out of Halifax) just before Till Carr Lane, opposite the Sun Country Inn, HX3 8TH.
