Hinchliffe Mill

 Map view 

Hinchliffe Mill is a village in the upper Holme Valley, about 6 miles south-south-west of Huddersfield town centre (7.5 miles by road) and 1.5 miles south-west of Holmfirth.

Much of the village is arranged around Woodhead Road, leading between Holmfirth and Holmbridge, and around Dobb Lane, leading to the hamlet of Dobb, where the village school is situated.

Part of the village was extensively used during the filming of TV's longest-run comedy series Last Of The Summer Wine when for many years it was the location of the home of characters Wesley and Edie Pegden.

The village grew during the industrial revolution when many mills were built along the floor of the Holme Valley, drawing people from cottage weaving in farming communities in small hamlets on the valley's hillsides. A four-storey mill powered by a water wheel was established in Hinchliffe Mill in 1832, but later became a larger mill with steam power.

Hinchliffe Mill was badly hit by the flood of 1852 when the dam of Bilberry Reservoir burst. Cottages in Water Street were swept away and 41 people in the village lost their lives, representing around half the total death toll from the flood in the Holme Valley.
