Calder Vale is an English village, located on the edge of the Forest of Bowland in Lancashiremarker. It lies on the River Caldermarker in a deep valley with only a single road providing access to it.

The village was founded by Quakers Jonathan and Richard Jackson, and in 1835 a cotton-weaving mill — the Lappet Mill — was built, powered by the River Calder. The mill and mill pond still exist today.

The church of St. John the Evangelist lies high above the village, linked to it by a woodland footpath. It was consecrated on 12 August 1863. It serves the village of Oakencloughmarker, in addition to Calder Vale.

The village also contains a primary school, Calder Vale Church of England School, which was built concurrently with the church. It is a small school consisting of two teachers and about 30 pupils, and it is situated next door to St. John's Church, the two being very closely linked.

There is also a village hall and a shop, the latter of which is only open for a couple of hours each morning and again in the afternoon.
