Discover Historic Almondbury
Sun 16 Sep 2018 at 2:30 pmFree
A guided walk as part of the Discover Huddersfield programme for 2018 and the annual Heritage Open Days.
Join Vivien Uff (@bvuff) for a village centre stroll looking at significant buildings described in her recent publication ‘Picture Walking Historic Almondbury’. Dating from a prehistoric hut settlement on top of its well-known Castle Hill and benefitting from lying on an ancient woollen trading route, Almondbury developed earlier than Huddersfield round a crossroads where an Elizabethan market flourished. It has many stories to tell.
Meet by 2:30pm at Almondbury Children’s Centre car park (free), off Farfield Road, HD5 8TD.
Although this is a free walk, pre-booking is required.
