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, Steve Gee, Steaven Heppener and more for their permission to include many of the photographs you will see.

Welcome to our Historic Tour of Halifax and surrounding areas

There are two main tours.

The first is the town centre tour and the second is the village tour.

We shall begin our village tour by exiting Halifax town centre from the Victoria Theatre. As we travel on our tour, there will be links to places of interest for you to view and then re-join the tour. The full tour visits every village in Calderdale, but you can join the tour at any of the starting points listed below.

We welcome your own photos, videos, stories, memories and anything else you have to offer at

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.

Links - And a big 'Thank You' for permissions to use your material.
