Warley Heritage Walk

Over 30 hardy souls braved the blustery conditions for Sunday’s “Maypoles, Milnes & McCrea” guided walk around Warley organised by Calderdale Heritage Walks

Our host, the excellent Iain Cameron, provided a fascinating and knowledgeable insight into the buildings, countryside and people that make Warley what it is today whilst strolling along the lanes and tracks in and around the village.  This walk, first introduced last year is well worth the £3 participation fee so watch out for a repeat performance in 2014!

Last Trade Route Re-opened!

Despite previous reports nearly 3 weeks ago of besieged Warley being liberated from the Siberian snows, we have to report that this was, in fact, far from the truth!  Our intrepid reporter from the infamous ‘North Wall of Warley’ (aka the beleaguered outpost of Edgeholme Lane) has sent in this tear jerking picture of astonishing fortitude and bravery as the final breakthrough was made just today!

CRW_3193 (1)Two intrepid lads took their lives into their hands by venturing down the lane (as they would have in any weather as it happens!) only to be confronted by the still blocked road.  Unfortunately their clutch was not man enough to reverse them back up the hill (now there’s a surprise!) but undeterred, and spades to the fore, they battled through and so re-opened the last trade route into the village.  It makes you proud to be British!
