West of Hebden

Dean Clough. The small mill near the southern end of the clough has a chimney of engineering brick, perhaps used in later years for a steam engine that replaced water power.

This rarely-used path in Callis Wood leads to Cruttonstall (976264).

The path to Cruttonstall, now heading ENE. It construction indicates that it was once a much more important route.

The path changes from its ENE direction on the right to south-west on the left.

Looking uphill to the south-west along the path to Cruttonstall. The trees lining the left-hand side must have been planted.

Looking back downhill to the north-east along the path to Cruttonstall. Notice how well the path is constructed.

The stile at the top of the path, where a narrower path leads to Cruttonstall farm itself. The lane appears to have originally continued west beyond the stone post, although it's no longer a right of way.

The path to Cruttonstall, looking south. The old walls have crumbled away and now clutter the route.

Sheep on guard. Looking south towards Cruttonstall.

Cruttonstall. A blocked-up window on the south side of the farmhouse.

Cruttonstall, looking towards the southern front of the farmhouse. This building could be very old. Even the bricks used to block the windows look old.

Cruttonstall, the south front. A look back along the path going south-west.

Looking east to trees below Edge End Moor.
