    After seeing Harry's thread it inspired me to post about the brickworks.

    I live approx two miles away from the factory and have been numerous times. They also used to do stock car racing near there in the 60's/70's near the lake it was called Sunny Bunces. The boating lake closed to the public many years ago after a little boy drowned in there.

    There was recent talks of demolishing the place and turning it into a retirement home but I don't think it got planning. It's in a gorgeous setting, very tranquil and the place is huge. Well worth a visit.

    A little more info courtesey of Malcolm Bulls Calderdale Companion.


    Taking a few shots...

    WTF Did I just read?!




    The factory chimney. Note the iron bands in place to keep the bricks locked together at the top of the chimney

    The infamous boating lake

    A video, factory walk starts at 2 min 30 sec. Please forgive my friends strange sense of humour.
    Hope this is of interest!
