    It's clear that location is key to a good exploration, with many building being demolished or renovated in our local co Durham area, we needed a road trip.

    Aiming to visit High Royds Asylum and being unsuccessful, we stumbled upon Murphy's Machinery 5 minutes down the road.

    This was a easy and relaxed urbanex. We noticed a house that was lived in just around the side of the factory building, but this was easily avoided.

    Some History
    G.L Murphy Machinery Ltd. was an industrial parts manufacturer established in 1930. They were based in a mill named Imperial Works, on the rural outskirts of Menston in West Yorkshire. The company made tools, belt driven machinery, transmissions and electrical equipment, specialising in items for tanners and leather manufacturers in addition to glue and gelatine plants. They produced batch runs of specialist components and carried out renovation work on various machine parts
    The factory closed sometime around 2002.
