Cleckheaton was in the ancient parish of Birstall. A chapel-of-ease, known as the White Chapel (later Whitechapel) was established.[1]

Having set their own standards over the last three seasons the First Team were a disappointment in terms of never really challenging for the Championship in 2016 but there were a number of positives.

Cleckheaton is at the centre of a number of villages which together form the Spen Valley:

We've negotiated with thousands of hotels to get the very best deals. We call them Secret Deals and they only last for a limited time.

With the 2016 cricket season now put to bed thoughts turn to next year as Moorend remains a busy spot and not just because of the Rugby season.

So near yet so far but in the final analysis the season has yielded a number of interesting pointers none more so than the progress of Sam G and also Joe Wood whilst Joe Robbo’ and the Rehman brothers Shahid and Attaur have been consistent with back up from so many others including the ever green Skipper Chris Dobson.

In the 1960s and '70s many new houses were built in Cleckheaton, as the town attracted commuters to Leeds and Bradford. Ashtons built many houses around Cleckheaton and neighbouring Mirfield.

Located next to Junction 26 of the M62 and within 40 minutes drive from Manchester, York and Sheffield, Cleckheaton is the UK’s most accessible course and welcomes visitors from across the country throughout the year.

By the mid 19th century the Spen Valley entered its golden era. In 1800 children were paid starvation wages for putting staples into leather for carding wool, but by 1838 there were eleven carding factories in Cleckheaton and by 1893 the town was recognised as the carding capital of the world.[citation needed]

The town itself is made up of areas such as Moorend, Whitechapel, Whitcliffe, Moorbottom, Moorside, the Marsh and Rawfolds.

The Club’s Seconds may have finished second in their League behind Champions Bowling Old Lane but Chris Dobson’s boys have been tremendous throughout the 2016 season.

Around the turn of the century, many huge and expensive buildings were erected and became symbols for the area's wealth; massive chapels and a new grammar school were built in Cleckheaton, and to mark the new urban district and the fact that it was the centre of it, Cleckheaton built a town hall in 1892, paid for by public subscription.[citation needed]

The Spen Valley was once heavily wooded. Evidence of human habitation in Mesolithic and Neolithic times has been found in the area. Roman remains have been found in the valley and it is thought that roads from York to Chester, and from settlements in Halifax and Wakefield, passed through Cleckheaton and the junction gave rise to a staging post.

From the 1920s, however, Spenborough's fortunes began to decline. Pits began to close and trade waned. Slowly, central government took on responsibilities previously held by Spenborough such as water supply, gas production, public health and education. By this time the level of industry was in serious decline as the textile mills, foundries and other factories slowly closed.

For elections to the UK parliament, Cleckheaton is in the Batley and Spen borough constituency[12] created in 1983. It was represented by a Conservative MP from 1983 to 1997, then by Labour MP Mike Wood until 2015, when Wood was retired and was succeeded to Jo Cox (Labour).
