    After checking out Meanwood Hospital, then trekking round some of Leeds' lower canal route in search of dereliction and with plans to enter the famous "Masticator" drainage system, the weather drove us over to Keighley to investigate Dalton Mill. Of course, the recent reports had brought this to our attention and there was also the issue of parts being missed by previous explores, which were our targets.

    On approach to Keighley over the hills by Micklethwaite and East Morton, the square sectioned, grand Victorian chimney of Dalton Mill is immediately apparent as the most prominent structure of Keighley's skyline.

    History is easy to find and I won't regurgitate other reports' info.



    I thought it fitting to William Blake's poem, And did those feet in ancient time as this really was one of the dark, satanic mills to which he refers.

    And did those feet in ancient time.
    Walk upon Englands mountains green:
    And was the holy Lamb of God,
    On Englands pleasant pastures seen!

    And did the Countenance Divine,
    Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
    And was Jerusalem builded here,
    Among these dark Satanic Mills?

    Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
    Bring me my Arrows of desire:
    Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
    Bring me my Chariot of fire!

    I will not cease from Mental Fight,
    Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
    Till we have built Jerusalem,
    In Englands green & pleasant Land
