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: Conditioning House, Bradford - Feb 09   Tue Apr 21, 2009 11:38 am

Visited with Silverstealth,

The historic Conditioning House was established as testing centre for the wool industry through a special Act of Parliament passed in 1887. The government and the traders wanted a nationaly and globaly recognised quality standard for wool and Conditioning house was to provide this standard. This was done by putting the wool through a rigourous series of tests to check durability and strength etc, they even had a "Moth room" containing thousands of moths where the wool would be hung and checked for damage after a certain amount of time. Bradford was chosen to site the centre as it was rightly regarded as the capitol of Britain's wool industry.
Construction of the building was completed around 1902. In its heyday Conditioning house employed hundreds of local people and was a hub of the local community. It was not uncommon for several generations of the same family to be employed there. Operations ceased around 16 years ago and it has been empty ever since.
















Wool sample,

The Roof, slightly fragile Laughing

Massive 4 storey tall machine,

Clerks office,

Main entrance corridor to the offices,

Cheers to SS for this one;)

These look fantastic! What a wonderful looking place - a sort of dry Titanic. Love the shadow of the gate against the wall too! Been past here a few times, and adore the old stone and brick work.

Great stuff!!
