    Visited with Dweeb and Azubi on day 2 of my holiday to Leeds :thumb

    The company went into liquidation in 2006 and in its time was one of the top 30 manufacturers of chemicals and chemical products in the UK....

    "The chemical industry was always dependent on other industries for its success, and as the textile industry declined, the chemical industry which supplied it with dyes, declined also. With the increase in manufacture of man-made fibres in the 1950s there was a demand for new dyes and chemicals, both in the UK and overseas. By the 1970's Yorkshire Chemicals was exporting to 52 countries. But in the 1990's textile and dye production moved overseas, and local companies had to adapt to a changing market. Pigments, dyes and other chemicals are still made in Leeds, many of the firms being part of much larger international companies. Examples are Lever Faberge (formerly Joseph Watson and Sons) and the Yorkshire Group (formerly Yorkshire Chemicals), which make dyes for both textile and non-textile products"

    Anyway, HUGE place. Had a quick scan the night before, but it was getting dark so after a rather random nights sleep we headed back first thing in the morning. I really liked this place and lots of random nice finds :D
