Derelict woollen mill, Longwood, near Huddersfield
Derelict woollen mill, Longwood, near Huddersfield
This was Sunnybank Mill, owned by C. and J. Hirst. The road which is bridged over by the building is the bottom end of Grove Street: and the road coming down from the left at the extreme left end of the mill is Benn Lane. It appears that the mill was listed, but the arched part collapsed spontaneously so the whole structure was demolished. I am indebted to Chris Allen for this information.
Further information from Conrad Diamond informs me that the collapse was actually caused by a skip-wagon hitting the arch.
