Leeds Industrial Museum, Armley Mills :: Shared Description

The Leeds Industrial Museum at Armley Mills is a museum of industrial heritage which includes collections of textile machinery, railway equipment and heavy engineering amongst others. It is housed in a Grade II* listed building which was once the world's largest woollen mill.

There have been mills on the Armley Mills site since the 17th century. These mills were destroyed by a fire in 1805 but they were rapidly replaced with the buildings which can be seen today. From the early 19th century Armley Mills became one of the world's largest woollen mills, continuing the city's cloth-making tradition until it closed as a commercial mill in 1969. The site was taken over by Leeds City Council and reopened in 1982 as a museum illustrating the industrial heritage of the mill itself and the city as a whole.
