    The conditioning house did many many things with wool. In a nutshell, wool weighs more wet that it does dry, and some wool has more grease in it than others, making it heavier. The conditioning house would weigh samples of the wool in certain conditions to get the true weight, type, etc.

    Bradford was once the centre of the wool trade in Britain. The valleys around the city were rubbish for farming, but the many becks provided a good water supply for grass, and sheep are more than happy on the rocky hillsides.

    Ravaged by rot and decay, we found the conditioning house in a rotten and dangerous conditon. The building is a "U" shape, the two sides joined by two sets of elovated iron walkways. There was plenty left to see inside, bailing presses, once grand offices, and the odd scrap of paper, tickets and labels which offerded an insight into the daily workings of the buildings

    Below ground was a selection of little rooms filled by various workshops, engineers shops, chippys shop etc.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the explore, and good to see Turk back in the game!
