    The History


    The Hunslet Mill and Victoria Works Complex is a series of very large disused mill buildings in Goodman Street in Leeds.

    Hunslet Mill was constructed by William Fairbairn for John Wilkinson and completed circa 1842. By 1847 some 1,500 female staff were employed in the mill reeling flax. It was occupied by a firm of linen manufacturers called Richard Buckton and Son from 1868 and then by a firm of blanket weavers called Dodgson and Hargreaves from the mid-1920s until it closed in 1966.

    Victoria Works was constructed for W B Holdsworth and was completed in 1838. It was occupied by a tailoring company called Botterill & Senior from the 1930s and later was owned by a firm of ironmongers called R H Bruce before they moved out in the early 1970s.

    The complex, which is currently derelict, is now owned by developers Evans and Caddick.


    The Explore

    Another one in mine and @slayaaaa’s long trip. We saw this place while driving through Leeds and decided to investigate. It was pretty sketchy in places and the floors were a bit soft but well worth the explore. The inners where pretty much the same on every floor but the externals of the building were lovely and the views pretty nice too. Although the place looked like it hadn’t been touched for years it was nice to see the scaffolding was still being checked so it was safe for us guys …….


    Enjoy the pics
