The Hebden Horse Level Water Wheel with the Overshot Flume

Postcard of the Hebden Horse Level waterwheel from about 1900

This has been taken from a postcard, and probably dates from soon after 1900, between 12 and 15 years after the mine closed. Points of interest are the flume for feeding the wheel at mid-height - this is thought to be the original water supply; and the section of flume lying on the bank between the first and second arms of the wheel, which is a remnant of the overshot water supply.
