Steep Fields and Mill Pond  


Draft Programme Proposal for Foster Mill Millpond Site - February 2010

This area of land has been a significant visual landmark on the Hebden Bridge landscape for the last two centuries. The land represents the former Millpond and milldam for Foster mill. During the period of Hebden Bridge's industrial history Foster mill was an active fustian mill; the Windsor View and Windsor Road over and under dwellings were built by the mill owner to house mill workers.
