‘The Ghost’ – Sir Marmaduke Langdale, Yorkshire Cavalier

Tickets ↓

Wed 22 Feb, 2:00pm
Tickets: £6 (£4 Concessions)

Hear the story of an ancestor involved in the Civil Wars of the 17th Century, who daringly relieved the siege of Pontefract Castle and held a senior command at Naseby. Surviving against all the
odds, Langdale once escaped disguised as a milkmaid and swam the Humber. In 1660 he was created a Baron and appointed the first Lord Lieutenant of the West Riding. Langdale’s sister lived at High Sunderland, the battlemented house that stood above Halifax until 1950. Join David Glover for this remarkable tale of bravery and endurance.
