I would like this website to be as much enjoyment for you as it has been building it for me. This has been my hobby for several years now and you are welcome to join me in its development and make it your hobby too. Any help and/or information is greatly appreciated
There is hopefully something here for everyone. Whether that is current affairs or Halifax history, which features in a big way throughout this website.
What's On - Here you can find out what events are happening in and around town. Plus, let me know of any events you would like adding.
Your Village - packed pages full of information and insight into each different village or district in town including; amenities, historic photos and events. These pages are a continual work in progress and you can help in so many ways, from adding a useful phone number to writing a full series of articles.
History Tour - Halifax town centre streets, as well as each local town and village, have their own History pages
These pages are currently attracting over 50,000 page views every month, and growing. This is a non-profit website but there are costs which include web hosting fees and membership fees where much of my information is sourced. Therefore, I am especially grateful for any sponsors/ advertisers, who can promote their businesses/events etc. at extremely reasonable rates.
In 2019, Halifax went through a tourist boom and the main reason was the success of the TV drama - Gentleman Jack'. This led to many large crowds visiting Shibden Hall and other local landmarks. With the new season approaching, and depending on lockdowns, the tourists will hopefully be back shortly.
On this subject which can be a bit of a mine-field I would like to state that I have not knowingly breeched any copyright and if found that I have I will be happy to discuss the issue with the owner hopefully to come to a happy solution and if this is not possible I will immediately remove any offending material.
