    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.

    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!

    On Tuesdays in July and August Yorkshire Cream Teas are 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).

    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.

    Please see our website and Facebook page for details. You can email us at mountzionheritage@gmail.com.

    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 can be slippery when wet.

    FEAST FOR THE EYES – Art exhibition by JANE AUSTIN

    The fifth solo exhibition at All Souls by local watercolour artist Jane Austin will include all of her local heritage prints as well many new paintings that fully reflect the range of her work.

Commission is donated to All Souls c/o The Churches Conservation Trust. Jane will be on hand to chat and painting if possible at the time, www.janeaustin.co.uk.

    The church was commissioned by Colonel Edward Akroyd who built one of the first model villages in England for his mill workers, both of which were designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott. The old manor house was later donated to become Bankfield Museum.

    Come to feast your eyes inside this gem of a building as well as on the art.

    A self guided walk by Jackie Butterfield around the church and Akroydon will be available and volunteers on hand to answer your questions.

    A bookable guided walk by David Glover of Akroydon cemetery is planned for Sat 18th at 2 pm.

Please note spaces are limited and a donation on the day to All Souls c/o The Churches Conversation Trust would be much appreciated.

    The old Sunday school, now 'Dance-In-Elegance', will be open to visit for refreshments.
