    Recent visit with the Urbex Hound.
    Here's the bumf........

    Reins Mill was originally built in 1847 and occupied by a Mr Charles Dean from 1866 as a Fancy Woollens Manufacturer.
    During its time it produced woollen Tweeds, Cheviots, wool-dyed Melton’s and Beavers, Worsteds, and Army cloths, all stock of exceptional finish and high commercial value.
    The complete processes of manufacture was carried here, including both dyeing and finishing, with the mill housing four sets of carding and scribbling machinery, four spinning machines, and two thousand spindles. It employed a work force of a hundred and twenty people.
    Around 1960 it became the “Holme Rug Company” weaving rugs and small carpets. The Company was in business about 15 years but went bankrupt and the Official Receivers moved in.

    HOLME RUG CO. (HONLEY) LIMITED

    Notice is hereby given that the Creditors of the above-named
    Company are required, on or before the 23rd May 1975,
    to send their names and addresses, with particulars of their
    debts or claims, and the names and addresses of their
    Solicitors (if any), to the undersigned, Frederick John
    Sheard, of 5-6 Kirkgate Buildings, Huddersfield, the
    Liquidator of the said Company: and, if so required by
    notice in writing by the said Liquidator, are, by their
    Solicitors or personally, to come in and prove their said
    debts or claims at such time and place as shall be specified
    in such notice, or in default thereof they will be excluded
    from the benefit of any distribution made before such
    debts are proved.—Dated 10th April 1975.
    Frederick /. Sheard, Liquidator.

    NOTE. This notice is purely formal and all known
    Creditors have been, or will be, paid in full. (783)


    In 2010 a planning application was made for a change of use and conversion into an MOT garage, the application was approved but it appears the new business didn’t last very long and the building now stands empty.
    Here's the pics....

    Yeah, its a nice little explore, not much damage, the metal fairies haven't visited yet or the graffiti artists.
    Some interesting bits and bats lying around and its nice and quiet.

    Explored here last week with another 28DL member. I appear to have taken pretty much the exact same shots as you with the addition of several dead pigeons! It was a nice chilled out explore.
