Birstall Tips

Birstall is a large historic village in Yorkshire, home to over eight thousand seven hundred people, set betwixt Bradford, and Leeds. There's a Victorian Market Place where the statue of Joseph Priestley who discovered Oxygen proudly stands, and a chance to follow in the footsteps of Charlotte Bronte as she also visited Elizabethan Oakwell Hall where fascinating rooms show what life was like. Museum lovers will be enthralled at Dewsbury Museum where toys and exhibits reverse time, or possibly the Moravian Museum housed in two 17th Century cottages will please with it's intriguing Parlour and Weavers Chamber. Perhaps the promise of a rainforest, and Butterfly House will tempt a visit to the Victorian Manor House of Bagshaw Museum. Brave hearts can venture deep underground at the National Coal Mining Museum which is situated in the Caphouse Colliery. If shopping is yearned for maybe the Mill Shopping Village will tick all of the boxes, or there is always the 300 colourful stalls to choose from at Dewsbury Market. For glorious scenery Wilton Park has acres of grounds with a beautiful Lake reflecting Mother Nature's beauty, and Woodland Walks, if that's not enough choose your club for a round of Crazy Golf, or even feed the ducks - Sharon
