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.

PostSubject: John Crabtree & Sons - Bradford - October 2008   Fri Oct 24, 2008 5:27 am

Credit goes to my homey Croiz for finding this place. We had vague plans to get to another mill via this one but it would have meant at least one of us, and probably both of us, spending considerable time in a spinal injuries unit. The mill is very pigeon shitty and smells baaad. But if you like mills, and who on here doesn't, it's worth a look. My exit from the place was most undignified and i have a juicy bruise just below my knee as a momento.

The only useful mention of the Crabtrees is in a roll call for the 'Bradford Pals', and the 16th Battalion, the first 1000 men to enlist in 1914 in the Bradford area for the Great War. Included in this list is Lieutenant D.L.Crabtree "A son of the late John Crabtree, a well known Bradford wool merchant". I'm not certain this is our Crabtree, but it certainly fits the time scale.



Some external shots










The basement - and the cleanest part of the mill




Moving up to the top floor, I think this is remnants of line shafting or it could just be some kind of pulley system to bring goods up to the top floors







Some company stencils lying about - maybe used for labelling sacks/boxes?






The original entry way, for business clients, wives etc.



Assorted shit lying around






Cheers, TC

Nice shots there pal.
Looks like a nice explore, love the basement shot. Looks fantasticly clean compared to the rest of the place.
So how you injure yourself? Hope it aint too serious.

Happy Clap

Look good fun mate, and some great shots here. Sounds like it's been a busy week this one. That pulley system is great. Always nice to see those sort of things still there. Good one.
