    Not done a report for a little while, been out plenty but have been a bit "can't be arsed" about doing reports. Anyway thought i might chuck one up, nipped over to Bradford with Host for a nosey in the Conditioning House, i rarely use a tripod but could have done with one here as there's plenty of interesting bits in the cellars but it's pitch black, as mentioned before, floors are not too clever.

    Bradford conditioning house was built by the Bradford Corporation after a special act of parliament to quality check and control the moisture content of textiles by means of laboratory examination and certify their true weight and length. It was the only such one of its kind in this country. The purpose built building was designed by F Wild who unfortunately died in 1901 and never saw his plans come to completion. The work was instead superintended by the city architect F. E.P Edwards. The structure was erected over four-storeys and basement around 3 sides of an open court and opened in 1902.. Now, with its glory days a distant memory, the Grade II-listed building is starting to slip from the consciousness of the Bradford population and is increasingly neglected, forgotten and derelict. Since its closure in the late 1980’s it has struggled to find its way. In 1990, there were plans to transform the building into a hotel and conference centre. Six years later, permission was granted to convert it into commercial offices. But nothing happened. In the absence of attention, the building became ever-more dilapidated.

    Lovely photos.

    Makes me wish I had taken more the other day, but I was knee deep in the crap in the basement for most of my time in there! But hey, that's me through and through...

    If you rarely use a tripod then there's still hope for some of us yet, your photos are always top dollar :thumb
