On this site you will find information on Cragg Vale in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, UK. You can access an outline of its past history, and take a photographic tour of our locality.

Cragg Vale is a lush steep-sided wooded valley of outstanding natural beauty in the county of West Yorkshire, only 7 miles from the Lancashire border. It nestles amongst the peat moors that surround it on all sides, and provides a stunning verdant contrast to their austere beauty. We are two shakes of a lambs tail from the Pennine Way, where it approaches Stoodley Pike.
It’s 8 miles from Halifax and 3 miles from Hebden Bridge. The nearest village is Mytholmroyd 1.3 mile away in the valley bottom. We have a village church of St. John the Baptist in the Wilderness, and an official touring caravan site for visitors.
The Pennine Way and the Calderdale Way criss-cross the valley, both being magnets to casual and committed walkers alike. The river Calder and the canal system are both close by and provide interesting an varied recreational activities.
