Crosspool History Walk
The Crosspool History Walk at this summer’s Crosspool Festival

A guided history walk of Crosspool will depart at 6.45pm from St Columba’s church on Wednesday 2 September.

The walk is led by Jan Millward and will take in historical places of interest in the Crosspool area with interesting stories about the people who lived and worked in the area. It’ll take about an hour and a half, finishing near The Plough pub on Sandygate Road.

Crosspool Chronicles

If you’re interested in Crosspool History then there are still a few copies of the Crosspool Chronicles walking guide available from local outlets while stocks last.

The walks cover Crosspool, Sandygate, Lydgate, Bell Hagg and Tapton Hill right back to 1695, looking at who lived here and where and what they did. There are lots of old photos and stories to enjoy.
