Land Farm Mill - 52 looms and a Capital Steam Engine and boiler to supplement water power.


Once you have listened to the commentary continue your journey.

You now turn right (away from the bridge) on the Pennine Bridleway, following the edge of Land Farm garden. At the point where the bridleway bears right and goes steeply up, you take a waymarked footpath off to the left, leading to a kissing gate and following the line of trees. The path follows a fence through a second kissing gate and through open woodland, coming out at a third kissing gate into a field. Here you bear right (following the direction of the waymark) to arrive at a finger post and stile in a wire fence.

From here turn left on to the track (later becoming tarmac). Keep your eye on the stream down on your left and you might spot Strines Bridge, which is one of the best examples of a packhorse bridge in the area. Looking ahead you may also spot Heptonstall Church in the distance. After about 1 km the track ends at a telephone box. The building straight ahead was part of Jack Bridge Mill, built in 1861, which was the only mill in Colden that was solely steam powered. To your right is the New Delight pub. Here is a good place to listen to the next commentary.
