    Arrow Clock Tower and Mill - Huddersfield - May 08


    This is Newsome Mill and clock tower in Huddersfield. It's lovely but dangerous.

    Big thanks to Ernie99 and Rebel for the original discovery of the place. Also many thanks go to Squirrel68 for pointing me in the right direction to get there. Dweeb gave me great information too....cheers mate as usual.

    As I left my tripod mount in the car, picture were all "freehand" ie:- not very good.

    Visited with the excellent Converse1























    And lastly....a shoddy flash shot of the bell.


    Thanks for looking :thumb

    Fantastic pictures. Any close ups of the detailed ironwork on the spiral stairs?

    Well getting in was dangerous, the chavs outside with matches (this is a tinder box, all wood and dry), holes in the floor, rotten stairs...not the safest place.

    Well worth a look though andy, I know you would like it

    Nice work KE

    Good to see the bell still in place -something of a rarity I'd imagine.
    Did you get any exterior shots?

    Cracking photos, KE. Especially like the third pic. Really nice wooden beams and brickwork and love that rather elegant spiral staircase.
