WYCLIFFE, pop 199, is an AGRICULTURAL settlement on the CPR and the ST MARY R, 12 km northwest of CRANBROOK. It was the site of a large SAWMILL, operated from the early 1900s to 1927 by the Otis Staples Lumber Co, which had an extensive RAILWAY LOGGING show in the region. Originally known as Bayard, the community was renamed after John Wycliffe, a 14th-century English church reformer.
