Anyone feel the need to be MOD?
Sun Apr 18, 2010 6:14 pm by meanwood_monks
Been thinking about this for a while now.

Some of you guys/gals have been here since day 1. Cheers for all your support over this time.
Was wondering if anyone was wanting to keep an eye on things and have MOD rights here.

It's Saturday morning, and the unexpected opportunity for a quick drive round Batley has materialised. The tall tower of a mill is clearly visable above the roofscape, and certainly worth a quick trip to see. I'd expected to see a converted mill, but was pleased to see I wasn't too late.


J.T and J. Taylor moved here in 1913, bringing their large woolen business to a custom made 5 story mill




Surrounding the main mill are a number of beautiful old buildings. Today access wasn't on to all, which was a shame. Some externals.




Tantalising swing doors, two floors up.


This mill was responsible for all processes of the woolen industry, from the raw wool, to finished cloth.


Of course, today it is being converted into apartments by the same company who did large mills in nearby Dewsbury and Mirfield.


Not much remains in the main building, but thankfully a closer look reveals some gems.


First attempt at light painting.


The gents


And the ladies




View from the top


Some nice signs...







Load of rubbish.


Cheers fellas. Wink

Sadly much was gone in the building I could get into. Much of the site was alarmed up too. Sad
