Hillside above Settle and the Langcliffe mills
Hillside above Settle and the Langcliffe mills
Looking north-west across the Ribble valley to Giggleswick Scar, with Ingleborough in the distance to the right. Plenty of sheep pasture on the hillside and hard to believe this was once a major industrial setting. Below in the valley are two weaving mills, originally powered by the ample water supply and later supplemented by steam power. To the left is Watershed Mill, now a shopping centre and a good place to buy a woolly jumper. To the right is the impressive High Mill, built in 1783 by George and William Clayton, and furnished with Richard Arkwright machinery. At the time it was one of the largest cotton mills in the country. Now the home of a packaging company.
