  1. Morning Post on Facebook this morning from a guy I follow, "The Walking Englishman", he gets bloody everywhere. No Mytholmes on Google Maps, but a pic of the Haworth one... Clicky Google Streetview's a pain in the arse on this laptop or I'd pin point it a bit better... I'll go through his recent posts a bit better when I have a minute - he sometimes publishes his routes - & see if I can work out where the other is too.
  2. This one turned out to be super scary access - it's a wing and a prayer job. Would recommend you wear brown pants And the site is part live too... The company was an industrial parts manufacturer established in 1930. They 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. Most likely the works closed sometime in the 1970's.
  3. "It's a dyeing trade" Brook Dyeing were a large company with at least four sites to It's portfolio. They were commission dyers to a host of textile companies throughout West Yorkshire. We all know the scenario though! The textile trade dwindles, we are flooded with cheaper imports and the inevitable closure of our traditional woolen mills ensue. This then seemed to signal the death knell for this particular site, and the order books are no more. There's a lot of activity within this complex. It seems as though certain parts are being rented out to various company ventures! As to what will happen to the actual dye plant Itself is anyone's guess. Let's have a butchers then. With It being associated with dyestuff, one would expect a rather colorful affair. Yeah...... I would agree with that. Workers had a fine choice of buckets and bins to choose from so they could happily weigh their dye recipes in. You would also need a set of scales for precision measuring. Not forgetting the dye. A nice bit of yellow. The business end of things. The dye pans themselves. That was your step by step easy guide Another door...... And even more to explore. The sample room, and lots of pretty little boxes. And lab vessels. It had a nice little office that was packed with goodies. And a cool comfy leather chair. This place never seems to end. Wooden stairs leading everywhere. Lots of weird and wonderful machinery to feast upon. Capturing the moment judderman style. Lets nip outside for a minute. Bit of fresh air. Filtration tanks. And the rather splendid view. Steel pipes. Luv em. The huge twin boiler. Heading out. There's simply too much to cover. So It's time to say adios my friends. And as always..... Ta for looking.
  4. The following pics were taken during my first visit to NJ Dyeworks posted here http://www.oblivionstate.com/forum/showthread.php/5587-NJ-Dyeworks-Yorks-May-June-2013 Within the site were other buildings divided into smaller units who used to offer miscellaneous services! Here's a selection of what was there: I'm not usually a wacky angles kind of guy, not sure what came over me that day
  5. This is a compilation made of 3 visits here, hence why I'm pushing my luck with the number of pictures. Hopefully there's enough variety to make it worth your while. Actually, after spending a fair few hours exploring, I've got quite a soft spot for the place now. And I'm starting to see industrial urbex in a different light It's more than just a derpy old mill - it stands silent but loads of smells remain & I could imagine the noise and buzz and shouting and laughing that would have once echoed around. It's more than a statistic on the decline of British manufacturing - 3 or 4 generations put in years of hard graft for an honest days packet and you can still feel that somehow... Anyway, here is some actual information: Built in 1868 and rebuilt after a devastating fire in 1906. Became home to NJ dyeworks in 1907 (although the emblem above the entrance says 1914). The company was taken over by Coates Viyella and then a management buyout secured its future in 2001. But this was short-lived and finally the curtain came down in May 2010. Currently there are plans to convert the site into 125 dwellings but there is local opposition as part of the plan involves removing 2 millponds which are an ecologically diverse habitat. There we have it, and I'm afraid there's no externals again - too keen to get inside! :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: Lets start with a photo from 1940 taken on the fire escape steps, original notes say that these were 'grey room men' Some external from inside - Weird lifting floor in here! This is where you would've found the top brass Finally, if there's a major incident the first thing to do is to have a proper brew...
