Hebden Horse Level - Extract from the 1890 25" OS Map

Extract from the 1890 25 inch OS map showing the vicinity of the mine

This is an extract of the 1890 25 inch Ordnance Survey map - published two years after the mine closed. The colouring was already on the original used. Points to note are the leat feeding the storage pond with a sluice marked; the spoil heap (Smithy Hill) with the smithy and mine building (the other red building marked was probably a powder house); the wheel pit with the flume feeding water from the mine, and the tailrace. The large pond at the bottom fed by Thruskill Well was a storage pond for the textile mill a couple of hundred metres down valley. Click the map for a larger image.
