Honley – Finding Banks
By Angela Marshall
Written by Civic Society member Angela Marshall and inspired by the BBC TV programme A House Through Time, this is the story of a Honley house, a family business and a lost community. Banks is that area to the south of the village centre and was the home to Holdroyd’s Joiners and Funeral Directors for almost 200 years. The author has chronicled the lives and the houses of most of the resident families over the past two centuries. With 104 pages and fully illustrated with over 70 pictures, plans and maps, in black and white and colour.
