    The Visit

    As this was less than a mile away from High Royds Asylum, it would be unjust if we missed out on it. Some of the site (that the buildings are on) are still in use and used as self-storage.


    The History

    G.L Murphy's Machinery Ltd. was an industrial parts manufacturer established in 1930. They were based in this mill, named Imperial Works, on the rural outskirts of Menston in West Yorkshire. The company made tools, belt driven machinery, transmissions and electrical equipment, specializing in items for tanners and leather manufacturers in addition to glue and gelatine plants. They produced batch runs of specialist components and carried out renovation work on various machine parts.
