Visited with Tcake and DrHowser after the issue we had at Fletchers, small but nice way to round off a taxing day

Historys​
(from the net, author unknown)
G.L Murphy’s Machinery Ltd. was an industrial parts manufacturer established in 1930. They were based in this mill, named Imperial Works, on the rural outskirts of Menston in West Yorkshire. The company made tools, belt driven machinery, transmissions and electrical equipment, specialising in items for tanners and leather manufacturers in addition to glue and gelatine plants. They produced batch runs of specialist components and carried out renovation work on various machine parts.

Imperial Works is primarily constructed from locally mined millstone grit and features an attractive redbrick chimney. It covers a fairly expansive area amid rural farmland to the north of Menston, just off Otley Road. Some parts of the site are still in use but this older section is now falling into rapid decay. Most clues from items found within the G.L Murphy factory appear to date its closure to some time in the mid 1970s.
