About this Event

Starting at Queens Road / Battinson Road HX1 4NS, the route leads through back streets visiting sites where three women once lived, all imprisoned as Suffragettes in 1907. One remained in the area in 1918 and was the first woman to vote in the West Riding – we visit the site of the Polling Station. Destination - the YMCA (Marlborough Hall) where Emmeline Pankhurst once addressed a rally. Also included – details of many factories, mills etc along the route. A linear walk, we suggest parking in Victoria Road, Hanson Lane.
