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: Pioneer House, Dewsbury - Sept 08 (18 pics)   Sun Feb 01, 2009 5:34 pm

As you all know by now Pioneer House is a Victorian Grade II listed building sited on Halifax Road in the centre of Dewsbury. It was designed by the Architects Henry Holtom and George Fox and was built in 1872 for the Dewsbury Co-op society and later known as Dewsbury Pioneers’ Industrial Society. Henry Holtom, who arrived in Dewsbury in his 20's, became a town councillor in 1871 and later became Mayor of Dewsbury in 1883. Holtom and Fox designed many buildings including schools, churches and also designed the town hall!

Here are my pics of that day way back in Sept:-

Exterior shots


That Amazing Hall

In the Clock tower

Looking out at one of the heads on the clock face

That sad looking Lift Cage!

The beautiful Stained Glass doors in the Restaurant

The Roof Terrace

The old beams made a good pic

Looking down the lift shaft

A small piece of written history

Thanks for looking. Happy Clap

Here's a few from me....yeh i know it's taken a while... Embarassed

Looking upwards at the clocktower & former snooker club stairway at the south-east end of the building

The former hall/theatre/snooker hall

Looking through an old film reel in the projection room into the main hall

Part of the original ceiling with the stage front & rigging still evident

One of the gems of this building is the wonderful clocktower

The clock mechanism-silenced for many years & partly stripped by thieves! :mad:

Part of the linkage to a clock face-pieces missing & stolen!

The bells remained thankfully

Some conversion building work did start here but stopped. The effect adds to the atmosphere

A view of the former restaurant/library

Blinds still hang intact & level!

Some of the beatiful (but broken) glass

This building still has many hidden suprises-old posters

A huge & empty safe!

Ornate roof parts taken from the balcony area outside the restaurant

Contrast the brightly painted archways...

...with the more decayed ones

Finally a view of the destruction & lack of historical respect that has been shown to this wonderful building!

Cheers if you've made it this far... Smile there's more of my pics on flickr
