Lake District, Stott Park Bobbin Mill water turbine

The photo shows the upper part of the wheelpit with the main header water supply pipe clearly visible. It is just possible to see in the centre of the image the casing of the Gilkes water turbine and its drive-shaft. The leather pulley belt that conveyed the rotary motion to the drive-shaft above is clearly visible on the right. KH
