Hall in Halifax is the focus for one of the guided walks
run by the school of continuing education to celebrate
local history week. Anne Lister inherited Shibden Hall
in 1826 from her uncle, and then began an affair with
a neighbouring heiress, consolidating their estates in
what was effectively a lesbian marriage. Dr Jill Liddington,
who edited Anne Lister's diaries in Female fortune
land, gender and authority, will lead the walk on May
9 from the magnificent Piece Hall (1779), visiting the
15th Century parish church and up to the edge of the Shibden
Hall estate. Other walks include Victorian and Edwardian
Harrogate, Bretton in the 18th and 19th centuries (both
May 8), Victorian and Edwardian Springfield Mount (May
9) and Industrial remains in Norwood Green (May 11). For
more details, contact the school on ext 33222 or email
