Griffe Mill 1

Griffe Mill 1 - Griffe Mill, Stanbury
This is Griffe Road which leads from Oldfield to Griffe Mill but is now a field. I imagine that at some stage it would have been a track or even cobbled to allow carts of coal and wool down, but there's no evidence of this now.

Joseph Craven's "A Bronte Moorland Village and its People", says that it was impossible to get a horse and cart down the road from Stanbury to Griffe in 1907 - only the Oldfield road was passable. He also mentions that the roads were bad 50 years earlier. There were plans at one time to put in a new access road from Ponden Bridge but that was never done.
