Calder Vale War Memorial

There is one road in to Calder Vale - and only one road out, the same one! There are paths in at the top of the village by the lodge and also around the back of the factory. I have taken part in the "Calder Vale Supper run" twice - it passes the memorial - but you won't notice - the legs are screaming! It was also on the route of the " Bleasdale Bash" This was the first long distance challenge I ever undertook. Pretty certain this event was never revived. However the memorial. This is recorded in the IWM Archives as No. 3380. There is additional information here.

Calder Vale Methodist Chapel,
The road goes up to the left to cottages and then continues via a style as a path.
A mill is on the right. The supper race starts and finishes here.
The river Calder is to the right. The photograph is almost on the bridge.

The Memorial is about 300 metres from the last picture.
The road continues to the village.
Houses face the cross.

Face on.
The inscription on the cross reads:

1914 -1918

IN
