We have the original 1847 Ordnance Survey map of the Cleckheaton area – for the first time displayed in its complete form. It’s been blown up to 5 foot high and it’s in our Cleckheaton branch. Richard Grylls has painstakingly marked out many commercial and municipal buildings and landmarks and built up a fascinating history of our local area over the last 200 years.
We invite you to visit our display, find out more about your locality and if you have
any knowledge that can be shared we’d be happy to listen. Richard’s archive can
also be viewed – a truly impressive local history. You won’t believe the importance
of our area in shaping modern Britain!
