    LNWR/LYR Goods Warehouse, Huddersfield - 2015

    This massive Grade II-listed building has been empty for decades. Built at a cost of £100,000 in red and blue brick, this was the largest warehouse in the country when it was built in 1885.

    The London and North Western Railway was known as the ‘Premier Life’ (the Liverpool & Manchester was one of its acquisitions) and was the largest joint stock company in the United Kingdom, collecting greater revenue than any other company in the country. It served some of Britain’s largest cities including London, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

    There have been a couple of expensive attempts at renovation in recent years. It's a prime location really, right next to the station halfway between Manchester and Leeds. However, with the most recent completion date of many saying she'll be ready by 2013... I think the money must've run out. For some reason, I don't think it's appeared on this website before. It's a great place to just sit and watch the trains come in and out of the station.

    “The most impressive of these [warehouses] were at Huddersfield and Leeds. At both places whole wagons and their contents could be lifted to different levels. The LNWR/LYR goods warehouse at Huddersfield had a wagon lift projecting from the side of the warehouse.” (Sheeran, 1994)

    “The goods yards of West Yorkshire’s railways dealt with a truly prodigious amount of trade. Textiles predominated, as one might expect, but the variety of textiles was far greater than many assume. In raw materials there was flax, alpaca, mohair, wool, cotton, silk waste and rags. In finished products there were woollens, worsted, tweeds, mungo, shoddy, damasks, silks, linen and corduroys, not to mention items such as a shawls and blankets and carpets, or the masses of yarn that was shipped to the Continent”. (Sheeran, 1994)

    @clebby - yeah actually, some great ones, not internally though. I'll get some photos up soonish.

    Most are on the outside of the powerhouse nearby.

    Excellent and well covered there twerk. One of those buildings I've admired from the outside and wondered what it looked like on the inside.
