Stainland is a village in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, England. It is situated approximately 3mi south from Halifax, 4mi north-west from Huddersfield and 2mi west from Elland.HistoryEarly routes and tracks followed high ground to avoid the marshy and wooded valley bottoms and it was on one such high level packhorse route that Stainland developed. The Stainland Cross remains as evidence of man's activity there in the medieval times. An economy based principally on wool and textile production led Stainland to develop as a hilltop village in much the same way as Sowerby and Heptonstall. With the industrial revolution, mills developed in the neighbouring valleys to take advantage of water power; however Stainland continued to act as a focus for the area. The village continued to thrive and a number of notable buildings were added to the street scene. With the decline in its agricultural and industrial function, Stainland is now less self-contained than it was and the proximity of the M62 has led to the development of a new residential role, housing people who work in the neighbouring towns. This, in turn, is leading to new pressures for change in the fabric of the village.The name Stainland derives from Old norse meaning Stony land, so it's unsurprising to learn that the land around Stainland isn't very fertile.The village appears in the Domesday book as "Stanland".Plan your tour of Stainland and United Kingdom (UK) travel itinerary using our United Kingdom (UK) vacation generator.
