    The Rutland Mill complex which lays on the bank of the river Calder has been a grade II listed building since 5th March 1998 and was an integrated worsted spinning mill which was built between 1872 and 1875 by Isaac Briggs, a retired railway contractor who invested in the mill for himself and his sons. The building was made using red brick with polychromatic brick details and Welsh slate roofs. It is now being being renovated as part of the Wakefield waterfront regeneration scheme. The Hepworth Wakefield, is situated opposite the complex. Demolition of the buildings was supposed to take place in April this year to create space for a public waterfront area, however it has not been carried out as of yet.

    They cleaned the Art store of crap months ago. The other buildings were full of associated crap from different businesses and old Art installations & Wakefield Council. Lithart springs had the one story building at the side of Barnsley road. probably the most interesting bit with ornamental cast iron/ glass roof TBH

    I don"t know why they stopped demo? as there wasn"t any major objections raised originally

    The Hepworth are currently using the bottom floor of the Caddies Wainwright building for various art events and the sale of art works. Some demolition work has taken place this year (2016) but most of the building are still standing. A few of the older building overlooking the river have been restored and have been converted into office space
