Had a little look here with KooK. Had wondered where this was for a while, clocked it after stumbling out of the Odeon at a godforsaken hour and only now have got round to having a lookles.

A rather advanced level of decay has beset this mill, mainly due to water ingress on the upper levels but also a good measure of pikey/firestarter/smackrat thrown in on the lower. Evidence of serious drug abuse here with lots of hypos lying about, so watch your step.

Lickle bicka history nicked from James Dolan:

The mill was built in 1801/2 by Mr Piele. In 1833 the whole mill was owned by Mr Benjamin and Matthew Thompson and at the age of 28, Sir Titus Salt was experimenting will Russian wool (Donskoi) for worsted which is a type of yarn. After realising that this wool was hard to untangle he decided to open up a seperate mill do sort his problem out and then soon he bought four more mills in the centre of Bradford. The mill is seperated into two sections one the old mill and one a more modern catering supplies. It is beleived that this mill is one of the oldest in Bradford.
