Temple Mills.
Temple Mills.
The Temple Mills (1838 – 43) were designed by Egyptologist and architect Joseph Bonomi Jun for John Marshall, founder of the Leeds flax industry. The mill had one large open room which was said to be ‘the largest room in the world’. To prevent rainwater penetrating the flat roof, the roof was covered on the outside with plaster,tar, earth and grass to insulate. It is said that a flock of sheep grazed upon the grass.
