If you have already pre registered Janice/Liz will be in touch

Join us for another great Senate weekend in the heart of West Yorkshire
where we will visit the famous Piece Hall with a special private tour.
This Grade 1 listed building is an iconic symbol of the important role
played by Georgian Halifax. It’s the only surviving intact cloth hall in the UK.
It has been at the heart of the town for nearly 250 years and has been
reinvented and repurposed with every generation.

We will dine on Friday and Saturday evenings in the splendid private Caygill Rooms in the Piece Hall, with wonderful views over the countryside.
We will visit the 900 year old Halifax Minster which is steeped in history and built by Benedictine Monks at the beginning of the 12th Century
and completed by 1438. It was Anne Lister’s spiritual home and she is buried there, but the church wardens are unsure exactly where now!

After lunch we will visit the famous 14th Century, Shibden Hall, which has become a popular destination after the hugely successful TV series
of the ‘Gentlemen Jack’ programme.
This is where Anne Lister lived with her family, she was also a hugely successful business woman in her own right.

The history behind the secret life of Anne is fascinating and on the Friday evening we will hear all about it. Shibden Hall is a gem of a historic property
and visitors were coming from all around the world before the lockdown especially to see it. It is just stunning!

On Sunday morning we will drive to Howarth, (those without cars will be able to have a lift) the village of the Bronte Sisters.
We will have a guided tour of this wonderful historic village surrounded by rugged countryside and then we will tour the famous Bronte Parsonage,
where the Bronte family lived. Lunch on Sunday will be at ones own cost and we have looked at a super pub for us to use.

We will stay at the Premier Inn Halifax Town Centre 1-3 October (Make sure you book the town centre hotel as there’s another Premier Inn on the outskirts of Halifax). Please book online for the hotel at:Premier Inn
