Autumn at Gibson Mill and Hardcastle Crags

Stepping stones across Hebden Water just downstream from Gibson Mill


Gibson Mill is a National Trust property just outside Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. It’s an old water-powered cotton mill built in the deep, narrow valley of Hebden Water. The valley is heavily wooded and is a spectacular site in autumn when the leaves turn to gold. If you’re a photographer, or just like walking, Hebden Bridge is a great place to visit.

There are two beautiful mill ponds above the mill. As you can see I didn’t get any satisfactory shots of either. I remember an old Peanuts cartoon that revolved around Charlie Brown’s efforts to draw pictures of people but he didn’t include any hands because, as he admitted, he couldn’t draw hands. I have a problem with lakes. I rarely get pictures of lakes I’m happy with.
