Can anyone tell me the name of the suffragette who went to school here in Hebden Bridge?

Lavena Saltonstall lived at various addresses in Hebden Bridge and almost certainly went to school here but no-one seems sure which school it was.

I think she lived at Wood Top for some time - although that doesn't help with where she went to school

Jill Liddington is the person most likely to know.

Get in touch with Jill Liddington. She will probably be able to let you have lots of information.

Yes, the best-known suffragette in Hebden Bridge is Lavena Saltonstall. She lived briefly at Wood Top and went to Hebden Royd Church School. I wrote about her in Rebel Girls (Virago 2006). And we will be visiting her homes on the Votes for Women! suffrage walk, Sunday 19th June, meeting at Hebden Bridge station at 2.15 pm. See you there!
