    Globe Worsted Mills were built in two stages – the construction of the first, Globe 1 began straight away in 1887 and was completed by the following year.

    Globe 1 was 5 stories high and consisted of 33 bays. A detached boiler house, chimney and offices were also included on the site between the canal and road. Globe 2 was built in 1889 on the opposite side of the road, with an overhead walkway connecting the two buildings. Globe 2 was 5 stories plus a basement, and had 15 bays.

    The Globe Worsted Company went from strength to strength over the years, and like many other textile mills saw a gradual decline in trade towards the end of the 20th century. The company went into administration in 2004 and closed later that year.

    The site has recently been sold to a private developer and a £30 million project is under way to renovate the buildings into a multi-use complex comprising public and business facilities. The chimney and walkway have been demolished as part of the works.

    Globe 1 is currently well under development while Globe 2 currently lies quietly behind.

    Explored with Birdman Whistle.

    It's Slawit if you're local, it's Slathwaite if you're not. It's only Slaithwaite if you're a prerecorded announcement on the pacer train.
