Welcome to the valley of the sheep - schep dene - the home of the Lister family for over 300 years. Shibden Hall was the home of the noted 19th century diarist Anne Lister (1791 - 1840). The Hall, dating originally from circa 1420, is a distinctive half-timbered building furnished in the styles of the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, adapted and extended throughout the centuries by the families who lived here.
Shibden Hall will be closing for filming on Monday 19th October. We will then be closed for the Winter period until we re-open in March 2021.
You may visit until the closure but you must book your tickets in advance online via the Calderdale Museums website. Tickets will be available in half hourly time slots and will go on sale a week in advance. New tickets will be released every Monday for the following week.
Numbers are being limited to make sure that visitors are kept safe. It is anticipated that there will be high demand and that these limited tickets will go quickly. Please note that tickets are for your use only and are not available for resale. During this current time all tickets will be non-refundable unless the situation changes due to government advice.
The visit to Shibden Hall will be a little bit different at the moment as new safety measures have been introduced. We ask for your support and patience during this time. You will need to choose a 30 minute time slot for the day that you would like to visit. Please ensure that when you arrive you have your ticket ready to show staff either on your phone or a printed copy. Sadly, if you do not arrive within your timeslot you will not be able to enter the Hall due to the visitor numbers management system and maintenance of safe, social distancing.
The shop will be open to visitors and refreshments will be available to take away or consume on site. Contactless card payments are preferred.
To help keep everyone safe, please follow social distancing and government guidance when you visit. If you are showing symptoms of coronavirus, or if you have been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 14 days, please do not visit.
We would recommend that all visitors use the main carpark for Shibden Park accessed via the A58 (Halifax to Leeds road), as the small car park situated at the top of the park (off Lister’s Road) soon becomes full and parking on the main road in that area is illegal. Please allow plenty of time to find parking and walk to the Hall (approx. 10 mins) to arrive during your allocated time slot. There are several routes to Shibden Hall which are well signposted at the bottom of the park.
On arrival at the Hall there may be a queue due to staff managing visitor numbers and checking tickets, please be patient as this is for the safety of all visitors, staff and volunteers, so that safe, social distancing can be maintained for everyone. Hand sanitiser will be supplied at various points around the Hall, but it is also recommended that visitors bring their own supplies. Enhanced cleaning will be undertaken around the site, throughout the day in line with government guidance.
Anne Lister is the focus of the BBC drama series 'Gentleman Jack' written and directed by Sally Wainwright. The series explores Anne's life and the lives of those who lived in the Hall and Estate. Suranne Jones plays the role of Anne Lister and Shibden Hall is one of the main filming locations featured in the show.
Shibden Hall is set in a 32 hectares of informal park and woodland, which have won the Green Heritage Award. Explore the beautifully restored historic grounds which offer cascades, pools, tunnels, terraced and fruit gardens and "Paisley Shawl" inspired Victorian bedding designs by Joshua Major.
Hidden within the depths of Shibden Park is a small wooded area known as Cunnery Wood. This Local Nature Reserve is on the footprint of Anne Lister's kitchen garden, fish pond, top up of the cascade and rabbit warren (hence the name Cunnery from Coney-rabbit). The area is rich in wildlife from stunning displays of bluebells under English oak, elm and birch to a multitude of songs from birds, healthy butterfly and moth populations and numerous small mammals throughout.
