Hi all,

History;
The company who used this place was 'Wilkinsons of Elland', started by Samuel Wilkinson and his sons Fred and Arthur were managers. In 1983 the company was taken over by Butterly Bricks and the site closed in 1985.

The visit;
on a break from University in Huddersifeld decided to take a trip up to Wilkinsons Brick Factory at Blackley near Elland. Also wanted to play with my new birthday present a new Canon EOS.

Thanks to Asylum_Raider for the tip about this site :thumb

Met some strange people on the site, I would say its the locals of Blackley, but I couldnt be too sure.


Equipment Used;
Canon EOS 1100D
