Over the years, Calderdale has been home to a huge number of interesting, eccentric, creative, and enterprising people. Our ‘Glimpses’ can only offer introductions to a few of these.
Amongst these are:
- Anne Lister, who inherited Shibden Hall in 1813;
- Ted Hughes, the poet, born in Mytholmroyd;
- John Frederick Bateman, the engineer and builder of several Calderdale reservoirs.
