Anne Lister's birthday diary entries
This event takes place at Shibden Hall
For Anne Lister's 229th birthday on the 3rd April 2020, with Shibden closed, birthday celebrations postponed, and many people throughout the world remaining at home, we wanted to share her diary entries from her journals 1818 to 1840.
The pages were scanned by Townsweb Archives in 2018 in conjunction with West Yorkshire Archives who house them. The digitisation project and also conservation of the diaries was funded by Sally Wainwright. The diaries are currently being transcribed in a project led by West Yorkshire Archives.
In the interim, here are the extracts from Anne's birthdays, with transcriptions kindly provided by members of the #AnneListerCodeBreaker team.
