    Stonebridge Mills Leeds.

    There isn't a lot of info on the web regarding this place but it's grade II listed and the building clearly shows the signs of expansion and adaptation through the years.

    The mill is a collection of buildings around an engine shed and pump house

    http://www.flashearth.com/?lat=53.791927&lon=-1.612059&z=16.3&r=316&src=msl

    The pump house has a fantastic bulbous wrought iron water holder.

    Parts of the building are being stripped of large items, i went one week and there was a complete loom in the weaving shed and the next week half of it had gone! Also the stone slate roof has disappeared. As this is a listed building I'd be surprised if this was was with consent (I've made a call to the council to find out whats happening, I'll post up any info I get).

    It might be an idea to take a P3 mask with you as asbestos lagging is coming away from the pipes. The missing roof has dampend the fibres but you can't be too careful.

    Anyway onto the pictures.
