An Historic Tour of Halifax

An Historic Tour of Halifax will be a collection of facts and photos that you 'the public' have provided for everyone's enjoyment. Please be careful to avoid sending other peoples' property so that we can avoid any copyright issues. 

Many thanks to Malcolm Bull for permission to include photographs from his splendid website.  

Page 1.    An introduction 

This is an open invite to everyone to add their own photographs and knowledge on everything there is to be known about Halifax and surrounding areas. Between us we should be able to build an amazing page full of local information and pictures relating to each area of town which can include stories, photographs, films, personal knowledge and experiences, related websites and much more. 

Hopefully, everything will soon take shape and become obvious where to look for specific information. There will be a log page which will be in the form of a tour and there will also be a map with points of interest.

Down the right hand side of the page you will see areas appear along the route of our tour. These pages will grow over time but will always be under construction because more material can always be added at any time as your knowledge and information is shared.

Tour route example:- (See right of page)

Every page will also have a map. You can easily zoom in to the area you wish to view and also view the index of pages. The index includes specific area and a pubs page. Just click on the subjects you want including in your search.

An introduction

My intention is to develop a full tour of interesting facts, stories, pictures and  news including our combined knowledge of the history of all areas of town. This will be done in a way whereas everything can be updated every time we receive more information.

If you would like to add to any article then please send an email to 

I will start the tour in Ogden at the far north of the outskirts of the town. I have collected some snippets, photos and stories from my website followers as well as searches on the internet which I will add as I set off on my virtual tour. Popular subjects will be subjects like pubs, schools, people's memories as well as historic facts. 

So please hop on the virtual bus and join our excursion.
