Gelatine silver print entitled 'Jumble Hole Clough, Hebden Bridge' by Ian Beesley. Prodiced for the commission `Through the Mill:, The Story of Yorkshire Wool in Photographs'. 1985-1987'.

Another water-powered cotton spinning mill of three storeys, built in an almost inaccessible location. Jumble Hole Clough runs from Blackshaw Head to Hebden Bridge and by 1840 accommodated four water-powered spinning mills, the goits and weirs of which still survive. This is what remains of Stamps Mill at the head of the clough and therefore the mill best served by the water course.
