Historic West Vale
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. The road straight forward was to works entrances. We are going up the road behind the gent first, towards Elland. The road to the right continues through West Vale and there is a road behind us that goes towards Greetland and on to Ripponden.
