New Street Mills, Pudsey
New Street Mills, Pudsey
Built in 1871 by Pudsey Worsted Mill Company, probably as a specialist weaving mill but later used as a room and power factory with 8 occupiers in 1910-11. In the distance is the warehouse with the intervening north-light weaving shed and engine house in the foreground. The chimney has gone. The heavy stone blocks below the roofline of the weaving shed would have supported the lineshaft driving the looms. Out of view to the right is a second shed and warehouse block that was powered by the original engine house. Note the blocked up bearing box in the end wall of the engine house.

I have struggled to locate this for years but following a close look at the picture I deduced the probable roofline and found it almost immediately on the aerial view of Pudsey then confirmed with Google Streetview - it looks just the same.
