This is the latest of a series of extremely popular courses which I have run for the Workers’ Educational Association in Shipley (West Yorkshire, UK). It focuses on four topics – communications networks, the development of the textile industry, coal and the age of steam, and the development of light engineering in the valley. The course features a mixture of classroom sessions and guided walks.

For further information or to book places visit the WEA website.

This is only one of several forthcoming events and courses in which I am involved. Here are some dates for your diary. More information will be posted later.


Saturday 25 April: Ilkley Moor guided walk 2


Saturday 30th May: Ilkley Moor Walk 3


Tuesday 9th June (for three successive Tuesday): Discover the Heritage of the Wharfe Valley. Information on the WEA website

    thanks for info Dave. Hope to make it to one of the Ikley walks. Have really enjoyed the previous ones you’ve led there and also at St Ives Estate.
