Hardcastle Crags is a wooded Pennine valley in West Yorkshire, England, owned by the National Trust. It lies approximately north of the town of Hebden Bridge.

Gibson Mill

Approximately half a mile along the valley there is a 19th-century cotton mill called Gibson Mill. The mill was water powered and has been renovated to demonstrate renewable energy sources and a sustainability strategy. It is surrounded by 400 acres of unspoilt woodland and crossed by 30 miles of footpaths. The former cotton mill was one of the first powered mills built at the start of the industrial revolution.

Water powered turbines, photo voltaic panels, composting toilets and locally sourced reclaimed interior materials have gone into making the venture sustainable.

The mill reopened on Saturday, 24 September 2005 and there are exhibits about the mill and its workers.
