The remaining admin building of the Boyne Engine works in Leeds, circa 1850's. I was hoping this would be another Birmingham Battery, so I was prepared to put the effort into getting inside, which was no easy feat I can tell you!! Once inside the compound the pikeys have made access a doddle. Inside was very decayed, the floors were terribly rotten. Nothing really remianed inside. in fact half of the building at least had been used as a kitchen to prepare meals for the board room upstairs. The huge round table was still in situ, obviously more hassle than it was worth to shift it!!

The one find of interest was this phone. I have seen this style of telephone with push buttons many times before, but on closer inspection it looks as if it is the body of a 700 series dial phone, with the push buttons mounted on a "plug" to fill in the hole where the dial should be fitted. Is this a very early example of a push button phone?
