Murphy’s Machinery


History

G.L Murphy Machinery Ltd. was an industrial parts manufacturer established in 1930. They were based in a 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

The factory closed sometime around 2002.


The Visit

So, Team Weasel decided to have a trip over the border into White Rose territory, the initial target was High Royds, but it seemed to be locked down at the time, granted, there may have been access somewhere, but it was absolutely pissing it down, so we scouted the area via the slightly open car window and then gave up, but as it was close, we decided to take a look at Murphy's.

It had been 5 years since my last visit and the elements have certainly taken their toll on the place, the floors in the upper bit are now pretty sketchy to say the least, seems the most intact bit in there now is the 'Porn Room'.

After finishing off here, we stopped off at a local fish and chip restaurant, now I know folks over the border are a bit odd, but when we asked for a chip barm, we were looked at as if we had three heads...apparently in that there area, you can't buy chips on any form of bread...you have to buy the chips separately....god knows why and the young chap behind the counter seemed to be as puzzled about it as we were!
