The Grange, seen from inside the boundary wall separating it the property from Main Street, is a function venue set in well maintained gardens. Amongst other groups, the Parish Council use it as a venue for its meetings. Behind it there is children's play area. To the left of it (though not visible) is the more recently built Grange Hall, a second 'function venue' capable of seating audiences of several hunded people for amateur dramatic productions, conferences and wedding receptions. The Totem pole in the picture was installed on 3rd May 2013 to reflect a longstanding connection between Radcliffe and a group of Canadian families who spent time in the town. After WWII a housing estate for Canadian airmen who had served at nearby RAF Langar was built in Radcliffe. In the early 60s a Canadian teenager carved three totem poles as a thank-you gesture but these it seems had become lost and/or perished. This replacement was had carved by a local resident who was a lad when the Canadians were temporary residents in the town.
