BATLEY History Group has unveiled another of its blue plaques celebrating the town’s storied past. The latest was unveiled at Batley Town Hall on Monday evening, explaining the building’s history.

Group chairwoman Wendy Storey said: “It was a privilege and honour to unveil the latest plaque in my capacity as not only the new chair of BHG but also because my late father Harold Hall was a former councillor and Mayor of Batley when it had its own borough council.”

Committee member Peter Connor kick-started the initiative last year and more plaques are to be installed in the coming months. The next one will be at Batley Library.
