Walkley Clogs was started by Frank Walkley in 1946. The main styles manufactured at that time were the Safety boot clog, Derby, Gibson and the Bar clog, with slipon styles being produced much later. In 1978 Frank Walkley bought out the famous Maude clog sole works in Hebden Bridge, a company that at its hey day had over 100 employees that turned nothing but clog soles! They suffered a fire in December 1990 which was stopped before it gutted the place. They've since relocated (still in Mytholmroyd though) in its later years it was made into a museum and retail outlet (which is why I’ve put it under leisure not industrial) A recent estate agent listing has it up for sale again with a price tag of a million!

This was my first explore around a year ago when it was all about being a bit of a nosey sod (and it still is) so the only pictures I took were on a phone camera just to show some friends what was inside. Since I live within spitting distance me and Birdman Whistle decided to revisit with a proper camera and to see how the place is getting on - not good as it turns out, it's way more battered than last year.












Thanks for looking.
