The community of Siddal is a district of Calderdale to the south-east of Halifax.
It is often considered to be a part of Southowram.
In 1850, Siddal consisted of a few farms and hamlets scattered between Whitegate in the north and Exley in the south.
The village emerged in the late 1890s when most of the housing, Siddal School and the Parish Church of St Mark were built.
Siddal School was opened on 12th July 1875.
In 1972, there was considerable damage to property after a landslide from a disused clay mine swept down the hill.
The name is probably Old English and derived from side and haugh meaning a wide hill slope, or wide meadow – or corner.
Pronunciation: The name is pronounced siddle with the stress on the first syllable and rhyming with griddle
The parish of St Mark's Church, Siddal today extends along the steep sides of the Hebble Valley from Stoney Royd in the north to Exley in the south. Above it in the east is the open countryside of Southowram, and in the west the area of Salterhebble and Huddersfield Road.
The surname Siddal probably originates in Lancashire.
