About the local area
The Standard of Freedom is located on the outskirts of Halifax in Skircoat Green which is a vibrant little community with a variety of small independent shops. The area has its own Junior School and has excellent road links via the M62 for easy access to Leeds, Bradford and Manchester. The Standard of Freedom is particularly ingrained in the community for its historic roots as this is where the Chartists met to create the Peoples Charter and set out their political demands. The pub was renamed the Standard of Freedom in recognition of the pub hosting these meetings.
