Cordwell Valley , Millthorpe was where the well known socialist Edward Carpenter lived. Cordwell Valley was a popular meeting place for all the different Clarion groups.

At the beginning of the 1900’s, a Clarion camp was situated at the side of the Royal Oak pub, across the road from Edward Carpenter's house. This was used by Clarion members at weekends (see photo below).

This Clarion camp was later replaced by the hut (shown in the photo below). This hut was transferred to the Clarion Club House land at Dore Moor in 1919/20 and used as the road-side shop.
