Lumbutts & Mankinholes, Nr Todmorden.

These are a set of pictures I took on New Years Eve 2016 in Lumbutts and Mankinholes, Nr Todmorden, West Yorkshire. Lumbutts and Mankinholes are 2 small hamlet's under the shadow of Stoodley Pike where things of notable interest include the former Lumbutts mill water tower, Lumbutts Methodist Chapel and the 4 small dams that stand near the chapel.

The pictures I took are available to view on Flickr and Clickasnap in 2 separate albums featuring pictures that are exclusive to each. The album below features the pictures available on Flickr which is currently 9 available to view.

Lumbutts Water Tower.
Lumbutts Water Tower is a Grade II listed structure that used to power the nearby Lumbutts Corn Mill. The Mill was the scene of the Mankinholes riots in 183 when the townsfolk refused the Board of Guardians demand for money as per the 1834 Poor Law Amendment Act. (This bit of information I found on the Malcolm Bull Calderdale Companion.)
