Daniel Illingworth & Sons Bradford


Bit of history:
Alfred Illingworth (September 1827–1907), was an English worsted spinner and born in Bradford, Yorkshire, the son of Daniel Illingworth and his wife Elizabeth Hill; he entered the family worsted spinning business at the age of 16 and in 1865, with his brother Henry, he established the Whetley Mills, one of the largest factories in Bradford. He was elected MP for Knaresborough in 1868. He was then elected at Bradford in 1880.

Now undergoing a stop/start conversion into flats and business units....
