Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak, many attractions are closed and event organisers are cancelling or postponing their events. While we will try to update the information on this site as much as possible, we cannot guarantee to have all the information we would like. Therefore we urge you to check the latest information on the attraction or event’s website or Facebook pages, and to contact them before travelling to avoid disappointment.
This collection represents a cross section of the wide variety of industries that developed in Calderdale. Some of the machines are the only surviving examples of their type in the country. Most machines are in working order and, where possible, will be demonstrated at times. The collection covers the last 250 years from the industrial revolution.
