Some Lost Buildings of the District

This Foldout lists of the houses, churches, schools, mills, and other buildings which were once to be seen in the Halifax and Calderdale district, but which – for better, or for worse – and as a result of combinations of development, progress, accident, stupidity and ignorance – are no longer here or are in a parlous state

There are a great many other lost mills, pubs, schools, and streets which are not yet included in this list

Please email me if you can contribute and photographs and/or information about any of these lost buildings

See also the entries which look at the conversions from Churches to houses, Mills to houses, Pubs to houses and Schools to houses

Please email me if you know of any that I missed
