The Dumb Steeple
12/1/67 (formerly listed under
Kirklees Park, Brighouse MB)

Obelisk. Probably late C.18. Square stone column in 3 reducing stages,
surmounted by large ball finial. The upper stage has a recess on 2
opposing faces, possibly for plaque.

In April 1812, 150 Luddites met here for their abortive attack on
Cartwright's Mill at Rawfolds, Liversedge. Known as 'Dumb' because
no bells were ever hung there.

Recently moved slightly for road alterations.
