  • Hole Bottom

    Hole Bottom

    This water course once fed a mill - in a few places the old stone walls exist, but mostly the stream has reverted to nature. It's not a massive flow, but there's a good amount of vertical drop.

  • Hebble Brook

    Hebble Brook

    The Hebble Brook flows from the golf course at Ogen down through Mixenden to Halifax. Several mills are built along the brook's course, however where these images are taken at the top of the brook the potential is very limited as the brook is very flat.

  • Gibson Mill

    Gibson Mill

    Gibson Mill is a National Trust property near Hebden Bridge. Sited on Hebden Water in Hardcastle Crags the mill is a beautiful site and well worth a visit.

  • New Bridge Mill

    New Bridge Mill

    New Bridge Mill site is a beautiful site at the entrance to Hardcastle Crags. There is quite a bit of existing infrastructure on the site (see the photos) and has good potential for a micro hydro installation. I must mention that whilst the site is beautiful and parts can be seen from public pathways, it is a privately owned site.

  • Lumb Bank

    Lumb Bank

    This site has excellent potential, with existing infrastructure (goits and a mill pond) in good condition. Colden Water has a good flow and the gross head is around 15 metres.

  • Haworth Old Road

    Haworth Old Road

    A very intersting site that borders Crimsworth Dene at Lumb Falls, this site has several stone lined culverts running through the fields surrounding the property draining the moors above.

  • Marsden

    Marsden

    This site is pretty isolated and a grid connection is expensive, so an off grid system is being considered. However the available flow in the main channel is not sufficient to allow for a very practical system - i.e. not year round.

  • Esholt Wastewater treatment plant

    Esholt Wastewater treatment plant

    Esholt wastewater treatment plant - not part of this project, but a good example of a recent installation.

  • Merrydale, Slaithwaite

    Merrydale, Slaithwaite

    An old mill site that has been updated to run a crossflow turbine.
