    Classic stone built mill which went through the usual transition from one firm, to smaller wool firms, to the usual band of random companies including an office furniture dealers.

    Despite these transitions of uses, much remains from the days of the wool industry. I must say this is one of the best preserved mills in Bradford. Years of abandonment have taken their tolls, a fair amount of spongey floors and collapsed roofs, but a fantastic explore. Some rooms still had paperwork in a bulldog clip or cups on a shelf, buried behind piles and piles of rusty office chairs! Squirrel found an interesting link to the wool industry, an old china cup made in the Ruhr valley, probably once belonging to a German worker which were once commonplace in the Bradford wool industry.

    Cheers to Squirrel for putting me up for the day....

    Nice to see some recent pics of the old place :thumb

    Surprising how many derelict Mills are still left in Bradford. I failed on this one due to Prostitutes of all things, and on a Sat" afternoon as well :eek:

    It's a nice one for sure. The panelled director's office near to the revolving door was a particular favourite part.
