Huddersfield Walk with a Caribbean Flavour

Huddersfield Walk with a Caribbean Flavour

A guided walk organised by the Discover Huddersfield partnership will highlight the people, places and achievements associated with the town’s Caribbean community.

Starting from St George’s Square at 2.30pm on Sunday 13 October, Heather Norris-Nicholson and Natalie Pinnock Hamilton, will explore the sites, sounds and stories associated with the history of Huddersfield's African-Caribbean descent community.

And, adding to the flavour of the afternoon, the walk will finish with refreshments served at the Antilles Credit Union (Trinity Street) inorder to find out more about how personal, local, national and international histories combine to create Huddersfield's own Empire Windrush story and their continuing contribution to the wider community.

The walk is expected to last between 1.5 and 2.00 hours and will cover an area from St George’s Square to Springwood and Greenhead Park, to highlight places renowned for Caribbean music, food, community events and places of worship.
The walk costs £3.00 per person but no booking is required.

A Caribbean Heritage Trail is one of 15 free printed trails produced by the Discover Partnership to complement its annual walks’ programme. Further information can be found at local information points and libraries or by visiting
