Halifax is a town in the Yorkshire Pennines. It is famous for the production of woollen cloth from medieval times to now. It has some fine houses built by wealthy cloth manufacturers. It is also famous for a diarist, Anne Lister, whose life was shown in a recent BBC television production, ‘Gentleman Jack’.
