West Vale


West Vale is a village in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, England. The village falls within the Greetland and Stainland parish of the Calderdale Council. It is 2.5 miles (4.0 km) south of Halifax, 2 miles (3.2 km) west of Elland and 4 miles (6.4 km) north-west of Huddersfield. Source: Wikipedia


West Vale is situated directly east of Greetland and is primarily based around Rochdale Road, Saddleworth Road and Stainland Road. These roads form a triangle within West Vale. West Vale is part of Greetland and is east of Greetland. The reason it isn't called East Vale is because West Vale used to belong to be part of Elland District Council who historically 'gave' the area to Greetland. The village contains an office for UK construction, infrastructure and facilities management company Carillion PLC. It is home to Heath RUFC and Greetland CC. West Vale also boasts many hairdressers and also, a park 'Clay House Park' with the West Vale Primary School nearby. Clay House is also on the route of the Calderdale Way. This is a 50-mile circular walk around the hills and valleys of Calderdale. A detailed route description can be found at www.crewheartsupport.co.uk/calderdaleway. West Vale is now gaining popularity as a dining and socialising locations as after being reduced to just one pub, The Queen, The Travellers Rest has reopened and a wine bar has taken a superb space in And Thornton's Antique centre, with an Indian and a fish restaurant taking other units so now some evening the car park is filled by diners and drinkers! The CO-OP supermarket built on the site of 'The Shears' is now the main retail outlet with two clothes shops, several cafes, a charity shop and two dog grooming parlours prove West Vale is now prospering. West Vale also houses the Stainland Road Medical Centre. One of the big old mills is now a booming recycling and packaging company while another one still intriguingly is filled with bales of some fibre for some niche textiles. Source: Wikipedia
