Henpecked Husbands – a Grand Day Out in Yorkshire in 1928 for the ‘Breathren of the Yoke’

Posted on October 10th, 2013 by The British Newspaper Archive

In these politically-correct days, one doesn’t hear the term, ‘henpecked husbands’, thrown around very often – indeed, if at all.

And even when the term was in vogue, we had no idea that there was a “Henpecked Husbands’ Society” (HHS).

So were very struck by this newspaper story which reports on a grand day out that the HHS (Yorkshire Branch) had in Blakedean, Hepstonstall (near Halifax), in 1928.
