    I've done a few explores, and am definitely getting into mills. I shall be revisiting another site very soon too.

    Armley Mills was once the world's largest woollen mill and is now an award-winning industrial museum. It’s well worth a visit if you’re in Leeds. Unfortunately they don’t have the funds to open all of the site to the public, so I went down for a looksee at what was the train yard.

    There have been mills on the Armley Mills site since the 17th Century. The original buildings having been developed in the late 18th century when a woollen mill and a corn mill were built.

    A fire in 1805 destroyed these mills but they were rapidly replaced with the building which can be seen today. From the early 19th Century Armley Mills became one of the world's largest woollen mills, continuing the cloth-making tradition until Leeds City Council took over the Mills in 1969 in order to create a museum illustrating the mills' and the city's industrial past.
