Event description
Friends of Turton Tower invite you on a trip to Shibden Hall, Halifax, home of Anne Lister, from the recent BBC series Gentleman Jack

About this Event

In the morning we will visit Shibden Hall , see below, which dates back to 1420 and offers visitors a fascinating journey through the lives of the people who lived and worked here, including the noted diarist AKA ‘Gentleman Jack’ played by the actress Suranne Jones.

The Hall is surrounded by the beautifully restored gardens and estate that forms Shibden Park. There are a range of features and attractions, but we will be concentrating our visit to the house that will include a short introduction before we are left to explore at our leisure.

At 12 noon the coach will then take us to Cliffe Castle in Keighley where we will have lunch in the Pavilion Cafe .

At 2pm we will have a curatorial tour around the house including the sparkling Victorian rooms and furniture, paintings, and decorative art. Special galleries deal with natural history, archaeology and social history, along with the internationally important display of stained glass by Morris and Co.

Cliffe Castle was originally the home of Victorian millionaire and textile manufacturer, Henry Isaac Butterfield. Completed in the 1880s the building was funded by the Butterfield family’s industrial empire which included wool textile mills and a shipping business that took British goods to Europe, America and China.
