Wilshaw Village Hall Committee are currently raising funds in order to acquire the village hall (formerly St. Mary’s Schools) as a community asset.
As part of the fundraising activities, a 5.2 mile circular “Welly Walk” is taking place on the afternoon of Sunday 29 October 2017 and will offer walkers a chance to view the scenic countryside surrounding the small village. The route for the afternoon is detailed in this PDF document.
If you would like to take part and make a donation towards this worthy cause, the walk starts at 1pm from Church of St Mary the Virgin (postcode HD9 4DZ), Wilshaw.
Donations can also be made online via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The industrial heritage of Wilshaw is discussed in David Griffiths’ article Industrial Villages South of Huddersfield.
