Lake District, Stott Park Bobbin Mill general view of waterwheel pit

In this shot the water header supply pipe is seen on the left of the picture. The turbine is hidden from view, but the projecting drive shaft from the turbine can be seen on the lower left where a belt-drive conveys the rotary movement to another pulley attached to line-shafting into the bobbin mill.
