Church of St John in the Wilderness, Cragg Vale, Mytholmroyd
The name perhaps arose because this was quite a remote area when the only access was by packhorse track. It was in Halifax parish until becoming independent in 1844 as 'Halifax St John in the Wilderness'. The church was a 'Commissioner's Church', ie funded by the Government, built in 1815 according to 'Pennine Valley, ed. Jennings, or 1839 according to 'The History of Hebden Bridge' by Colin Spencer.
