    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.

    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. Always looking for the bright spots around her in colour and pattern, nature and architecture there is something for all tastes. 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. To book please phone Anneliese Gray 07932101395 or email Anneliese.gray@calderdale.gov.uk Monday – Thursday only from 9th August. 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.

    If you have old connections to the church and Sunday school we would love to add your stories to our project the 'People of All Souls'.

    6pm The 1835 violent political contest in Halifax became known as the ‘window-breaking election’. Immediately after, ‘mock marriage’ announcements appeared in Yorkshire newspapers.
