  1. Not a huge amount to say about this place, just wanted to share a few photos. Came here with @Buffalo Explore was pretty straight forward, nothing much left of the place it was still worth a quick visit though. Thanks for looking
  2. A quick one this but I'm quite happy with how it came out. St. Pauls church was completed in 1849 and shut in 1999. It was (at least in 2008) on the market for the somewhat bargin price of £170,000. Now you dont get the windows with that (they have been auctioned off) you do however get multiple pigeon corpses and the splended aroma they have left behind... A cracking little church and it's sad to see it in the state it's in. Like if you like subscribe if you wish comments welcome
  3. Stephenson Bros originally manufactured soap based agents for the processing of wool. In Kelly's Bradford Postal Directory of 1927 the building is listed as the business premises of Messrs Stephenson Brothers Ltd Dry Salters. Some rotten and spongy floors here. Visited with three non-members. Thanks for looking.
  4. No history unfortunately, and it will soon be luxury apartments Narrowly avoiding death with Raz, Jamie_P & Rott3nWood. The Explore; So we went for a look at the Conditioning House but other than teleportation i couldnt see a way in. So not worth traversing a wall with concreted glass on the top and a gate covered in Razor Wire... Still always come out with a positive right so going with that frame of mind, if i'd have slipped i'd have received ghetto acupuncture free of charge - Sweet So over the road we went and after crossing the needle forrest (Not nice pine needles if you catch my drift) we had a look around this place. Nothing spectacular and not really worth the risk of aids or being mauled by the dogs loose in the building or even the dodgey as fook floors but i still managed to chuck together a decent amount of photos; Thanks for looking
  5. Had last week off work and conveniently so did Raz, so obviously went went on a derp hunt. On this occasion our travels (and my pug) took us to Bradford for what i would describe as a series of catastrophic fail, so on our way back we decided to go the back way in the hope we might stuble across some kind of spectacular building to save the day. What we found was by no means spectacular but it was so clean and tidy that it more than made up for what it lacked. Little bit of history courtesy of Raz cause im lazy and google got me the exact same info. Parkam Chilled Foods are manufacturers of quality cooked meat, sandwich and sandwich filler products for the retail, wholesale and foodservice sectors. The group is made up of five companies, each with their own specialities. Together Parkam Chilled Foods provide the complete cooked meats solution manufacturing a vast range of products from a variety of species. The explore; So after a dodgey Bear Grylls like entrance into the grounds of the factory we proceeded to scope out the place and at first it appeared to be locked tighter than a nuns f****, however, perseverance paid off and we found our entry. It would appear that whomever owns the building really doesnt give a toss about it as they have a rather sophisticated sensor alarm system which is turned off. We found this out after a few heart stopping moments everytime we passed one. Few buildings we never made it into as we didnt want to out stay our welcome so quick get on and get in Heres a few more; As always thanks for looking
  6. Explored with Raz History; Dalton Mills was once the largest textile mill in the region, employing over 2000 workers. It was built by Joseph Craven in 1869, replacing the original mill which was owned by Rachel Leach in the 1780's. The mill was named Dalton Mills after the manager employed by Rachel Leach, a man called Dalton. In its heyday between 1869 and 1877 the mill provided jobs for workers all over Keighley and the Worth Valley. As the textile industry declined, the fortunes of Dalton Mills changed and up until 2004, it had been virtually empty for almost a decade. John Craven, the great-great grandson of Joseph, who had built the mill, eventually chose to sell Dalton Mills, to ensure it’s survival. Part of the renovation of the Clock Tower has included restarting the landmark clock which has not ticked for 25 years. In the mill's heyday, thousands of workers relied on the clock to get to work on time, but the hands had not moved for a quarter of a century.The clock was repaired, so it can display the time to the whole of Dalton Lane again. The explore; After a couple of failed attempts we returned with new resolve! Mishing through pikey yards and trying every window we could find we finally found our way in! Past asbestos warnings and fire damage into the most asthetically pleasing mill i've ever seen. Workshops, large open spaces and the signs of redevelopment. Plus an extremely dodgey floor! - what else can you want? Few snaps from the day; Dirty bit of HDR to finish If you got this far, thanks for looking
  7. Visited with the usual lot. One of the few big mills that I've yet to do/see in Bradford. The mill suffered from a fire in 2010, the damage you'll see in the pictures, although it was contained to the top floor, the lack of roof is slowly effecting all the other floors.
  8. UK Ginger jono - Bradford - 2013

    More specifically the flats above this pub which I believe was named after me. Visited with Fudgey wudgey this place hasn't been reported much but is next to YBS as being my favourite roof top in Bradford. Fudge had a blonde moment and forgot his charged battery for his camera Pictures: Brown muff
  9. Bradford Odeon update (sort of)

    Looks rather interesting although the photos don't really do it justice. There's much better ones elsewhere from 2011. Got to be good news that it may be one small step away from demolition. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-24744907
  10. hi guys im a new member and pretty new to urbexing .. i live in a place called keighley its neer bradford and leeds in west yorkshire always looking for new people to meet up with and go on an adventure speak to all soon
  11. BRAP BRAP BRAP SWEET TING I was coming back from Newcastle (the real one not the fake one near Stoke) and needed a break from driving so decided to get a bit moist. Bypass is a massive pipe pretty deep under Bradford with lots of walking for a few redeeming features such as the huge climbs up to street level. Like a dick I forgot my tripod (it's normally on my bag and I didn't check) so these are all hand held so I'm sorry about how flat they look . And finally a video of the walk out Cheers for looking
  12. A really nice mill with a little hidden jem.The workshop is like a time capsule worth the trip just to see this, a little history.... Dalton Mills was once the largest textile mill in the region, employing over 2000 workers. It was built by Joseph Craven in 1869, replacing the original mill which was owned by Rachel Leach in the 1780's. The mill was named Dalton Mills after the manager employed by Rachel Leach, a man called Dalton. In its heyday between 1869 and 1877 the mill provided jobs for workers all over Keighley and the Worth Valley. As the textile industry declined, the fortunes of Dalton Mills changed and up until 2004, it had been virtually empty for almost a decade. John Craven, the great-great grandson of Joseph, who had built the mill, eventually chose to sell Dalton Mills to Magna Holdings, to ensure it’s survival. Part of the renovation of the Clock Tower has included restarting the landmark clock which has not ticked for 25 years. In the mill's heyday, thousands of workers relied on the clock to get to work on time, but the hands had not moved for a quarter of a century. Last year Magna Holdings repaired the clock, and illuminated the faces, so it can display the time to the whole of Dalton Lane again. Swoooooooosh....... Smurf Surf......... Thanks for looking Oldskool....
