Those of you who have visited the Colne Valley for exploring, tourism (or both) or general pleasure will know what a stunning part of the world it is.

This is Globe Worsted Mills (est. 1887) one of the larger of the remaining few mill buildings yet to be converted in the Colne Valley, saying that, it is currently undergoing renovation on one side of the existing buidings, however, these photos are from the side not yet bashed around.

There used to be one of the characterful riveted iron overhead walkways that connected the two parts of the mill, this was removed about two years ago when renovation got underway.

Plans are to convert the mills into an ‘innovation centre’ as part of the sili-colne valley regeneration in an effort to attract high tech and blue chip industries to occupy the masses of floor space there is lying unused. Current status of the project is that it is underway, although it did stall for a while, read more here: http://www.examiner.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/construction-work-resumes-re-develop-9741445

Myself and Tweek took an evening stroll here and I took a few photos:

Considering it's a little "empty" compared to those down the road, I really enjoyed my time in there


btw... stunning photo there.

Laaavly photos, and a top day for an impromptu visit. It's just shame they pulled down that walkway. Heart bleeds.


WHEN I FIRST WENT HERE... it looked largely the same as it does now.
