    2pm Anne Lister determined this would be a serious union, with Ann Walker moving into Shibden. Coal-mining and ‘Blue’ political door-stepping continued. The 1835 Halifax contest became known as ‘the window-breaking election’. Immediately, ‘mock marriage’ announcements appeared in Yorkshire newspapers. Then in 1836, lurid tales reached Shibden of Anne and Ann being burnt in effigy down in Halifax. Who was behind these public jibes - and why? Walk leader: Jill Liddington. 2-hour circular afternoon walk with short readings from Female Fortune, and ends with tea, cake and Q&A in Halifax. There are some steep steps, walking boots or shoes are advised. Meet at 2pm in the Piece Hall by the Book Corner.
