Set in the picturesque Shibden valley, a mile from Halifax, Shibden Hall dates back to 1420 and offers visitors a fascinating journey through the lives of the people who lived and worked here, including the noted diarist Anne Lister (1791 - 1840). Shibden Hall’s architecture is a mix of styles reflecting its interesting and varied history.
This short film on Anne Lister is part of a longer interview with Helena Whitbread, which can be seen in Shibden Hall.
