Ten blue plaques honouring notable local people and places in and around Halifax
From diarist Anne Lister to confectioner John Mackintosh, there are a number of blue plaques located in Halifax and across Calderdale.
The historical markers are a permanent sign installed in a public place to commemorate a link between that location and a famous person, event, or former building on the site. Here are ten blue plaques commemorating important people, places or organisations that have been unveiled by Halifax Civic Trust over the years.
1. Anne Lister
One of the most recent blue plaques on this list, Halifax diarist Anne Listers honour was unveiled on April 3 of this year. The plaque is located at her ancestral home of Shibden Hall, Halifax.
