With more than 100 pictures, this book tells the story of the extraordinary rise of the non-conformists in the Upper Calder Valley, West Yorkshire, and is a lovely addition to the bookshelf of anyone interested in the dissenters and the chapels they created. Author Amy Binns explains how this “wild and unchristian place” became a heartland for the movement, and how these matter-of-fact rebels changed our world. Refusing to pray the way the Government told them to was only the start of the non-conformist revolution. Soon their chapels flowered across the landscape as they formed trade unions, built schools for all and campaigned for the vote. And through it all was an energy and enthusiasm that blossomed in plays and pantomimes, lantern lectures and bazaars, firebrand pulpit performances and heartfelt prayer meetings. Including many posters and programmes for chapel events in Hebden Bridge, Todmorden and Sowerby Bridge, three maps to help you find the remaining chapels and anecdotes about the lives of those who built them.
Leeds Museums and Galleries are offering a number of family orientated events with a Christmas theme over the next few weeks.

WYHF are expecting quite a few projects like this to start in the near future and would like to help by publishing details of activities and events throughout Yorkshire. Let us know if you are aware of any and we can post the information and hopefully links to special websites.
In the meantime here is the Nidderdale project:
The new World War One Project Officer, Amanda Peacock, has organised a drop-in event in Masham this Saturday to launch the Heritage Lottery Funded First World War Centenary Project in Nidderdale.
Local residents have been invited to share their stories or objects relating to the First World War at the event and we are hoping to speak to those interested in volunteering to undertake historical research for the three year project.
The event will be held at Masham Town Hall on Saturday 16th November from 10am to 12pm.
For more information about this event or to find out about the project, please contact Amanda Peacock on 01423 551664 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
