Bankfield Museum, Halifax

Bankfield is a museum in Halifax, West Yorkshire. The building is Grade II listed and used to be the home of Colonel Edward Akroyd until purchased by the then Halifax Corporation in 1887. The building then became a local museum and library with the grounds developing in to Akroyd Park.

The buildings now offer displays of textiles, local history, toys, art, as well as other temporary exhibitions. The buildings are also the home of the Duke of Wellington regimental museum. The museum is free to enter and is only a short drive from Halifax Centre and approx. 30min walk from Halifax Train Station.

These pictures were taken on the 11th August 2011 using a Nikon d3300 SLR camera. There are a total of 35 pictures, which all can be seen on Flickr, with others available here and on Clickasnap. The images below are taken exclusively from my Flickr album.
