Historic Elland

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

  • Elland - West Vale to Elland Bridge (this page)
  • Elland - Westgate and Hullen Edge
  • Elland - Southgate
  • Elland - Victoria Road towards Holywell Green and Blackley
  • Elland - Ainleys
  • Elland - Old Earth and Dewsbury Road

Huge thanks go to Steaven Heppener for allowing the use of his huge collection of photographs of Elland and surrounding areas.

We have now reached Elland Bridge(left of shot) but we are now going to approach this same point from the Exley side of Elland Bridge.

This will be the start of the "Elland - Huddersfield Road and Ainleys" page which would be to continue along this main road, OR you can tour to the right of the distant telegraph pole and up past "Elland - Westgate and to Hullen Edge".
