    On 6/3/11 I have visit this abandoned tool works.

    Murphy’s Machinery is but a stone’s throw from the infamous High Royds Asylum. Having spotted this on one of KooK and I’s many outings to said asylum, I decided to have a little look. Visited on my todd as KooK was engaged in the wooing of a lady and therefore was absent from this little wander.


    History cobbled together from some sources:

    Some of the site is still live, indeed there is an occupied house just around the front yard and some industrial units for rent to the rear.

    So... a bit of contortion, a sliced hand and some serious dodgy floor testing later I was inside this little factory. There’s not much to it but what remains is nice... There is evidence that there was a forge on the site here, however, after the company seemed to switch businesses at some point I presume it was removed.

    The pigeons here were by far the most mental I’ve ever come across, one was trying to escape by flying madly at an office window, making quite an obtrusive racket. Fearing that this little shitehawk could give away my presence, I grabbed it and chucked it out of a hole in the roof.

    On with the photos.

    Also, I discovered what I think is West Yorkshire's, if not the world's largest intact collection of early 1970's soft porn.



    Some of the finer details... The cup final was a 2-2 draw between Chelsea and Leeds and in the days before penalty shootouts, Chelsea took the cup with a 2-1 win.

    And it would have been rude not to being as I was just around the corner...


    Thanks for having a look. ​
