The following Blogs are a collection of various local subjects specially designed for your pleasure and entertainment. 

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. 

The tourism continued when 'Happy Valley' became another popular drama


Hot on the heels of the success of Gentleman Jack and Happy Valley  is 'Gallows Pole'

The story of the Cragg Vale Coiners
