Unfortunately this trip has had to be cancelled due to lack of numbers. We may run it at a later date. Keep your eye on the website next Spring.

Well, our Spring trip was a success so come and enjoy another  trip with the Friends, just over the border, to Halifax, home of Shibden Hall (as featured recently on television), a beautiful half timbered hall dating back to 1420.

We will then go into Halifax in time for lunch and a visit to the recently restored Piece Hall, once  the centre of the Halifax cloth trade and the adjacent Calderdale Industrial Museum.

There will be plenty of time to explore the town and maybe visit the 12th century Minster (who would have thought that Halifax had a Minster!) before returning home in time for tea, or maybe tea and cream scones in Halifax!
