    Post Globe Worsted Spinning Co. West Yorkshire.


    "Valley Of Mills"

    Nestled in a pennine valley lies this beautiful Victorian Mill which dominates this true gritstone hamlet. You really couldn't wish for a more picture postcard setting.



    Looming large and ominous.



    A stark reminder of those dark Satanic days.



    It's a big un for sure! And if you noticed the walkway in the shot above you will see why! It links both Mills.

    It makes me go weak at the knees.



    Mmmmmmm..... That walkway.



    Mmmmmmm.... That walkway indeed.



    It was built in 1887, has 5 storeys and a central engine house with 33 bays. The smaller Mill has 6 storeys but only 15 bays. It has laid dormant since closure in 2005, but has always been very well protected. Plans are afoot though and the future looks bright....... More on that later.

    ................................................

    Shall we go in then.



    Something tells me I'm on the wrong side of the law here.



    There seems to be a theme running through this Mill? Here's a clue.....

    Cool In Blue.





    Joseph's coat and Benetton spring to mind! Yep....... This place oozes colour. And the textures and light are just magical.





    Shakin Stevens..... Green Door.



    Simply Red.



    Up in the rafters.



    And out onto the roof.



    Stunning views.



    Pillar porn.



    And more colour.





    And some toned down shots.







    Row upon row of sample boxes.



    And some samples.





    Lovely vintage Oil bottles.



    Sorry for the overload peeps! Got that sinking feeling yet.



    Just a few more! Honest.







    I think this belongs in the 1st aid room?



    Fantastic old fire hose and cart.





    And to finish with..... Where it was made.



    ..........................................

    "The Future"

    This report was probably way too long, and I await my bollocking. Sincere apologies to all. But thanks for looking.

    Very, very nice indeed. I love that green, wrinkly bridge to bits!

    Does your village name begin with a G perchance? I'm seriously thinking I know that skyline! :) No answer required by the way, I'm not going to moderate my own reply!

    Well done fella, some lovely pix.
