First in Dorset. Now West Yorkshire - Mostly Halifax . . . Getting to know the place.
Tempting! What an interesting time contrast.
It is! An extraordinary contrast.
I love the golden colour of the stone - and the view of the sky through the windows...Nice one :)
I wonder if the mill will ever be renovated?
Hello Squirrelbasket. I can't decide on the colour of the stone in that area. Sometimes it is more a dark mustard than honey-colour. But most striking of all is how nearly everything is ingrained with nineteenth century soot - even field walls.Hello Toffeeapple. I doubt this one will be renovated. There are so many in the area - all very large (VERY!) - and so dilapidated it's hard to think what use they could be put to if renovated. If you take a look at Dean Cloughhttps://www.yorkshire.com/view/culture/halifax/the-dean-clough-mills-125291you'll get an idea of the size. The one in my photo is smaller - but was attached to a huge one which burnt down. It's very sad - especially as these huge buildings have shaped the nature of the town. But I doubt any except very large cities would need as many offices and art galleries as they might offer. And Halifax isn't a large city!
