Event description
A walk from Shibden Hall around the hills and valley of Halifax - home to Ann Lister or 'Gentleman Jack'

About this event

For 300 years (c. 1615–1926) the Shibden estate was in the hands of the Lister family, wealthy mill-owners and cloth merchants, the most famous resident being Anne Lister (1791–1840), who became sole owner of the hall after the death of her aunt. The story of Anne's life has been televised as Gentleman Jack which was filmed at the Hall.

So explore some of Calderdale's history and be inspired by Anne!

We will meet at 10 am in the car park at Shibden Hall - charges do apply. Refreshments and toilets are available at the start and end of the walk.

Confirmation of the walk and any further joining instructions will be emailed nearer the time to all attendees who have booked tickets.

Sarah Wilson will be your walk guide.
