Clariant Chemical Works

Myself and Squirrell set out to take a look around this place, as it's virtually on his doorstep

From the aerial pic it promised to be an epic site, however sadly it was far from it

2 of the potentially more interesting buildings have long since been demolished, the pikeys have stripped out anything useful that remained

It was worth a look, but tbh unless your inspired by a 4 hour Derp then I would recommend you spend your time elsewhere in search of better stuff :rolleyes:


Some History:

The site in Leeds/Horsforth was a designated Textile, Leather and Paper site, although products from other businesses were manufactured there

Formed in 1995 as a spin off from the chemical company Sandoz

It was the main driver for the research, development, production and marketing of Optical Brightening Agents (OBAs, FWAs) world-wide

The site finally closed down in 2008, resulting in the loss of 270 jobs

Harrow Estates have since accquired the entire area (32 acres) as part of a compulsary purchse. This includes the nearby Colourflex Dyeworks and Riverside Mills



The first batch of pics are from the following 3 buildings
