Historic West Vale
It can be quite difficult to separate Greetland from West Vale and I have yet to see any actual borders. Therefore, some of these photos are overlapped onto each page.
Many thanks to Steaven Heppener and Graham Jagger for permission to display their photos.
In the picture above, we have come from Salterhebble (left centre).
The main road continues past the top side of the 'Calder and Hebble' pub and runs parallel with the canal on towards Elland (top of picture).
Our tour takes the road which we see running along the bottom side of the pub and continues towards West Vale and Greetland (top right).
The other, wide looking road, which enters from bottom left, comes from Copley.
We can also see the canal basin (bottom right) with the river above it.
Mackintoshes Tennis courts left and Cricket ground bottom with Heath rugby ground right. Charles Lambert & Co at North Dean Dyeworks became a West Vale garden centre.

West Vale -first crossroads
We have reached this point from left of picture. Firstly we can view Calder Street, straight forward. The road behind the gent takes us towards Elland. The road to the right of picture continues through West Vale to a second crossroads and on towards Holywell Green and Stainland. There is a road behind us that goes towards Greetland and on to Barkisland and Ripponden.

Runaway lorry coming from Elland
This is the road from West Vale towards Elland. Long Wall back towards West Vale and Salterhebble (top right).
Again we look back towards West Vale. The top road is bringing us towards Hullen Edge while the bottom road brings us towards Elland Bridge. The steps take us to Hullen Edge Park.

Back to West Vale again. There are several side streets here with lots of terraced housing.

We are now heading towards Holywell Green, where this tram has come from.
