Jowler Mill, Luddenden, Warley
According to Malcolm Bull's Calderdale Companion, this mill was built around 1812 by Jonathan Bracken for his daughter Agnes. It was originally called Holme House Bridge Mill. In 1933 the engine was replaced by a turbine (does this mean the mill reverted to water power?). Water was taken from the Cold Edge Dams via a straight drain that runs steeply down the hillside past Wainstalls. Grotto Terrace, further up the valley, was built to house some of the mill workers, and there were also mill worker's cottages to the right of this viewpoint, with two storeys facing the road and two underneath; the hillside here is almost vertical. part of the mill was used as a recording studio for a while, but the buildings have now all been converted to dwellings. A web search will reveal some more images of the mill.
