Temple Mill

Visiting Temple Mill was the achievement of  a small ambition, since I’ve wanted to see it for a long time. It’s a grade one listed building which lies up a quiet side street in the Holbeck district of Leeds. This is not the only example of amazing Victorian architecture to be found down there (the neo Florentine chimneys are good too) but I think it’s unique. It was modelled on the temple of Horus. Behind it is the weaving shed once described as the biggest room in the world. The roof was grassed over and had sheep grazing on it, at least until one fell through a skylight and landed on a worker. No-one has found a use for the place yet. 20180902_104330.jpg
