it would be great if you could help me with my Uni project. I have created a survey on a light that can prevent injuries by having a 2 headed torch, please could you fill out the survey. Very quick to complete.
here is the link:https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/XWP8BNF
design concept :“A compact handheld light (Rather than installed lights) which has two adjustable long lasting, economic LED lights. One facing towards the ground, the other will face forward or above depending on users needs. This allows consumers to safely walk up stairs in dark environments which will reduce the risk of tripping over or falling down stairs. In addition, this can help explorer easier by increasing visibility whilst the compact design allows for one hand use enabling access with their other hand. “
Built in 1871 but had been refurbished at some point.
Now, I don't do heights.. So I was chuffed to see my mate practically run towards it in excitement and go first. It was pretty high and the grated floor was not ideal if you wanted to avoid looking down.
The tower probably stands around 40-50 ft but exact measurements are unknown at this point.
Apart from the odd clanging of metal under our footsteps and how wobbly it was, it was a good first climb like this for me!
Got some snaps as usual, enjoy!
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.
Thanks for looking Oldskool....
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.
