    Fancied a explore this weekend so ventured to Huddersfield. The place in general isn't saying too much but the clock tower and the dodgy staircase made it all the worth it. Plus the view from the top was outstanding!


    History (nabbed)

    The mill was founded by John Taylor in 1827 and was a working woolen textile mill right up until 1983.


    This building was constructed in the 1880s, and replaced an earlier mill building that was lost to fire in 1872.


    The mill is most familiarly associated with the firm of Taylor & Littlewood, formed in 1873 when Ephraim Beaumont Taylor went into partnership with Joshua Littlewood. Under their management, Newsome Mills developed into a “Splendid block of buildings, mills and weaving sheds of great extent and admirable arrangement.â€￾* All cloth manufacturing processes were carried out on the site – starting with raw wool and ending with the production of fine worsteds. There were 200 looms and 600 employees making trousers, coats and woolen goods.
