Clifton is a district of Calderdale to the east of Brighouse. It was a part of the parish of Hartshead-cum-Clifton.
The Anglian village stands on a ridge 200 ft above the valley and the Calder, and is mentioned in Domesday Book.
From 1166, it was held by the Earls of Warren.
It was originally a township in the parish of Hartshead, and became a parish in its own right in 1887 – with St John's Church as the parish church.
The name means a farmstead on – or near – a steep bank.
There was a maypole in the village until the mid-19th century.
An old rhyme runs
Clifton stands on Calder banke, And Hartshead on a hill, Kirkeleys stands within the dale, And many comes ther till.
