Welcome to the
Glusburn and Cross Hills Hub

The hub is a partnership between 'Glusburn and Cross Hills Parish Council' and 'Wibbly Webbly Websites'.

The aim of the hub is to keep you informed on what is going on in the local area and for everyone to discuss what should be happening.

Within this 'Hub' we also intend to pool local information from social media pages and newspapers, alongside knowledge from historians and photography archives.

This World War 1 first aid box complete with original medicines, disinfectants and antiseptics was used by W.B.Whittaker on hospital train number 17 in Northern France. Enormous efforts were made to save casualties including prisoners, and stretcher bearers, horse drawn ambulances, motor vehicles, hospital trains, hospital ships and converted coal barges all played their part.

'Craven's Territorials in the Great War: the 1/6th Battalion Duke of Wellington's (WR) Regiment 1914-16' We have tickets available for Steven Howarth's talk on Friday 24th June at 7:30. Steven is Head of the History Department at Ermysted's Grammar School, Skipton, an expert in Craven's WWI history and author of 'A Grammar School at War'. In his talk on Friday he will be following the part played by our local lads for the entirety of the war. The men had come from all walks of life, had joined the Territorials before 1914, probably looking for adventure but found themselves at all the major battlefields of the war. Many would not return, many would return injured but all those that did would never be the same again. If anyone would like tickets (£7) they can be purchased from the Folly or message me and I'll arrange for them to be collected at the door.
