Havercake
Local bread made with oatmeal, water, salt and yeast.

The dough is pressed into flat cakes which are cooked on a bakestone and then hung over the fireplace on a breadfleak to dry.

The word comes from the Old Norse hafre [oats].

In 1783, following corn riots in Halifax Corn Market, a special session – with Joshua Horton – proclaimed that

every penny oat-cake must weigh not less than 12 ounces when new baked, and not less than 8 ounces when dry; every penny loaf of wheaten bread [marked with a W] not less than 7 ounces, and every penny loaf of household bread [marked with an H] not less then 9 ounces

The bread was often given as a snack in pubs for the customers to dip into their beer.

See Havercake Lads and Thomas Spencer

Havercake Lads
The name goes back to the Civil War when Geoffrey Bosvile of Gunthwaite House raised a regiment of 1,000 men from the West Riding.

Later, it was a popular name given to the 33rd Regiment of Foot – then the 1st Yorkshire West Riding Regiment – because of a tradition from 1782 in which one of the recruiting sergeants carried a havercake on his bayonet or his sword at recruiting parades. The cake symbolised the fact that military life ensured food which had become scarce during the Napoleonic Wars. A recruit received a bounty of 10 guineas if he enlisted for 10 years, or 16 guineas if he enlisted for life.

Many of the recruits came from Sowerby.

Jeffrey Knowles, his great-grandson writes


In 1894, at the age of 66, Andrew Heaton walked from his home at Siddal Wells to Elland, and then rode to Brighouse to pay his rent. He walked home up Brookfoot Hill to Southowram. It was raining, thundering and lightning at the time, and, feeling unwell, he called in at the Shoulder of Mutton for a drink. Having drunk just one whisky, he suddenly got up and went outside, crossed the road and collapsed banging his head on the kerb.

On seeing this, one of the locals shouted

He's drunk, let him stop where he is, he's wet on the inside, let him be wet on the outside as well

No-one offered assistance except one young man named James Brown – also known as Fiddler Jim – and a lad, John Jowett, who carried him up the road to the stable of the Pack Horse Inn, wrapped him in a horse sheet and left him. James Brown was seeking work and had to be on his way, but he asked the lad to look in on him later. Some 3 hours later, the lad looked in at the stable and found Andrew quite dead.

At the inquest, Anthony Bairstow landlord of the Shoulder of Mutton said the deceased was not drunk. He arrived at the pub tired, starved and nearly finished and had only one drink. Fred Baines landlord of the Pack Horse said that he did not know the deceased was in his stable, and John Jowett did not know the stable belonged to the Pack Horse Inn! Verdict: Accidental death due to a fall

Transport company formed by Oliver & Charles Holdsworth on 1st December 1924.

They provided local services, and services to Manchester, Leeds and Bradford. The buses operated from the Ward's End bus station where their buses were able to load and unload without plying for hire on the public highway, which was not approved of by Halifax Corporation, whose trams and buses they were competing with. The company had frequent disputes with Halifax Corporation who had their own rival bus and tram services. Later things settled down and they were able to operate from the streets.

The company employed non-Union labour and was unaffected by the General Strike of 1926.

In 1928, they took over Hugh Brigg of Wilsden and ran services to Bingley.

In 1929, they took over the Calder Bus Company.

On 2nd May 1929, the company was bought by the London, Midland & Scottish Railway.

In 1930, it became Hebble Motor Services Limited.

In the 1950s, they took over several smaller companies.

In the 1970s, after various mergers, they were absorbed into the West Riding Group and then the National Bus Company

A single-arch stone bridge across the Calder at Hebble End on the road between Heptonstall and Erringden. In the 16th century, it was known as Litthouse Bridge.

Further evidence suggests that this was a settlement in the Southowram area.

The name may mean someone who lives by Hemming's path, and Hemming or Hemmingr may be a personal name.

There are currently around 46 entries on the Calderdale Companion for people with the surname Hemingway. This count does not include other forms of the surname. The individuals are not necessarily related to each other
