Shibden Hall Estate

Much of the land and property in and around Shibden Hall – and in other parts of Halifax – was owned by the Lister family

In 1826, when her uncle James with no male heir, Anne Lister inherited Shibden and the estate, which was then around 400 acres. The extent of the estate expanded during her time at the hall.
