Derelict Recycling Plant, Burley, Leeds
Several years ago Leeds City Council built a Recycling facility, where recyclable rubbish was taken to be sorted & stored. In 2002 or 2003 one of the buildings caught fire, and the blackened hulk remains there at the end of 2005. The sight must be well known to many people as they travel past it along Kirkstall Road, one of the main routes into Leeds.
I took the photograph from Haddon Road, looking across Kirkstall Road.
Update : March 2016 - the derelict recycling plant was demolished in early 2016, having stood in this derelict condition for 13 or 14 years. The demolition was part of the refurbishment of the whole recycling site.
