Historic Elland

Historic Elland is surrounded by several other smaller communities and therefore we have divided this page into the following sections.

  • Elland Town Centre
  • Elland from Halifax, West Vale and Greetland
  • Elland towards Holywell Green and Blackley
  • Elland towards Ainleys
  • Elland towards Rastrick and Brighouse
